| January 18th, 2013 | Comments Off on Postponement of our Anniversary Dressage and Show Jumping Competitions for the 19th & 20th January, due to heavy snow fall.

We therefore, will offer the following: .1 Our Anniversary show will be transferred to our next programmed unaffiliated dressage competition to be held on Saturday 23rd February.

New range of show jump heights offered at our unaffilliated show jumping competitions to help Novice riders

| January 16th, 2013 | Comments Off on New range of show jump heights offered at our unaffilliated show jumping competitions to help Novice riders

We are often asked by riders whether we could provide lower jump heights at our competitions to help the more Novice riders. We have considered these requests and are pleased to advise everyone that we have from the 17th February incorporated ‘Cross Pole’, 1’9, and 2’0 classes to our popular Hartpury College Unaffiliated Competitions. Though riders will not be able to qualify at these lower levels it will give them the opportunity to compete at these jump height levels. We have also extended this opportunity to our Evening Show Jumping Competitions, by introducing a new height of 2’0 – 2’3 instead of 3’0 – 3’3 class. We hope riders will enjoy competing at these levels and further support our competitions. For assistance we have provided our latest schedules below for these events: Evening show jumping ‘Cricklands Qualifier’ – February-May_2013 NEW STARTER HEIGHTS Unaffiliated showjumping ‘Hartpury Qualifier’ – February_to_April_2013

Clarification on booking procedure for Arena Hire.

| January 3rd, 2013 | Comments Off on Clarification on booking procedure for Arena Hire.

In order to hire our arena you have the following options: 1) You can book the arena immediately by phoning us direct and making a card payment. There would be an additional small charge of £1.00 (if under £50) for the card processing, but once paid this will guarantee your booking date and time. 2) You can also send your booking request by Post, stating what day and rough time you require the arena hire with an enclosed cheque made out to HFEC, and your contact details. We would then contact you to confirm your booking or agree any revised booking. We can no longer take a booking over the phone with NO payment, as we have experienced a number of people who have made a booking with no payment, and then cancel at the last minute, therefore not allowing others to get the date and time they require.
