Dauntsey Park Horse Trials
Today sees the start of Dauntsey Park, held at Brook Farm, Great Somerford. Post code for those that need it: SN15 5JA
Beanie and her team have made a stirling effort to gets today’s event day rescheduled to Thursday, due to the recent atypical weather! I am sure you would like to thank them all for their hard work in allowing the event to go ahead. Those members with horses going please do make a note that came from the Organisers today to say they have received multiple withdrawals since times where issued across the board on Thursday so please be prepared to run ahead of your allocated time.
They have been busy watering the show jumping and cross country and the aggravator will be used on the dressage and other areas that require it.
Best of luck and enjoy the marginally cooler climate!
