The Land Rover Blair Horse Trials concluded on Sunday and we had a great time in the Owners hospitality marquee on the edge of the main arena.
Cathy Butler and Lindy Best welcomed all members and Owners of competing horses alongside ERM Owners.
We now move on to Burghley. See you there
The EHOA will have its hospitality marquee alongside Ring 2 as normal and Margie Hall and Tor Rickcord along with a team of volunteers are looking forward to welcoming you all during the week.
A few house keeping notices for you please:
Members are allowed to bring guests with them into the hospitality marquee. However we will be charging for them. Guest entry fees are, as last year, Thursday and Friday – £10, and Saturday £20. On Saturday guests will only be permitted entry if there is deemed to be sufficient space. EHOA Members and Owners of competing horses have priority. Those taking places over Lunchtime are strongly encouraged to buy Lunch.
Opening hours – Thurs, Fri, and Sun 8.30am and Sat 8.00am. Breakfasts are sold on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 8.30am
The AGM is on Sunday at noon, followed by barbecue lunch – free to EHOA Members. Please, if at all possible, let us know in advance if you will be joining us.
If you have not applied for a stable field pass and would like one it will be possible to get them on site with Tor. Just pop along and ask.
Details on the dinner and how to apply will also be available. Don’t forget to save the date: Thursday November 22nd at Ascot racecourse.
Finally, if your membership is due and not on a direct debit please see the ladies on the desk and you can settle up with them. If you’re not sure ask them to leave a note and I am very happy to check when I can. The card machine will also be in action to make life quick and easy!

This voucher can be collected from the secretary and used in either of the two Laval coffee outlets. They have one situated in the lorry park and the other alongside the main arena on the edge of the food village..

We are looking forward to seeing you all in the Owners/EHOA hospitality marquee at The Magic Millions Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe.
We have moved to a new location, we are now positioned to the area left of the Commentary box on the Main Arena backing on to the collecting ring.
This change makes it more convenient to pop out and watch your horse warm up for SJ and also makes the Owners more accessible for prize giving, should you be lucky enough to feature.
The marquee will be open from 9am on Friday and Sunday and 8am on Saturday as the show jumping is starting early.
See you soon
