Postponement of our Anniversary Dressage and Show Jumping Competitions for the 19th & 20th January, due to heavy snow fall.

| 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.

Regrettably we have had to take the decision to postpone tomorrow’s unaffiliated dressage competition and this Sunday’s show jumping competition. This is due to heavy snowfall received from 7.00 am today (18.01.13) along with the weather forecast for further snowfall during Saturday. 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. The dressage tests for this competition will remain as intended for this competition other than Class 6 which will merge with class 7 and be one Pic & Mix Class incorporating Elementary 42 and 44 along with Medium 63 and 71. The winner will be the competitor with the highest percentage obtained between the four tests.

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

We do however, still need some time off and have therefore, decided that this will be on a Tuesday from 9.00 am until 3.00 pm, whereby  the arena will then be available for hire along with clear round jumping. Where we have clear round jumping from 5.30pm onwards, the arena will be available for hire with a course of jumps from 3.00 pm until 5.00pm only.

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.
