BE80 Competitors in Section H2, please check your DRESSAGE times as start time has been put back 1 hour. International 2* and 3*competitors, please take your passports to dressage to check in with the FEI vet. British Eventing Members get FREE entry to spectate, just present your membership card at the gate. Parking increases to £18 per car (admits all occupants) from Friday 18th August. Please allow extra time when travelling to Frickley Park Horse Trials due to works taking place on the A1 which are causing delays. Frickley Restaurant – There are a few spaces left to enjoy a delicious 3 course meal on Friday/ Saturday evenings. Priced at £38 per person and can be booked here: https://frickleypark.co.uk/buy-tickets/ Just a heads up about Dogs – must be kept on a lead or risk a £30 fine, you have been warned!

Other things to note –
Burghley EHOA Drinks Reception – please apply for tickets if you would like to attend, they are going quickly and I wouldn’t want you to miss out.
Blair Castle – At Blair every year there is a team of people that manage to get some golf in! If you play golf and would like to join in, pack your clubs and get in touch with Jamie Innes (email@example.com ) the man in the know! Blair is a 9 hole course and great fun. We might even find a prize for the winner if they are an EHOA member!
EHOA facilities on offer at Blair too and we are on the look out for some volunteers who could help man the tent this year. Please get in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a good weekend,
