Then looking ahead to April –

Thoresby Spring Carnival of Eventing

Looking forward to the end of March, BEDE have kindly invited EHOA members as well as owners of competing horses to use the Caunton Clubhouse at the Spring Carnival of Eventing at Thoresby.   EHOA membership badges must be worn to gain access and to enjoy complimentary tea and coffee and live streaming at the weekend. A caterer will be on hand to serve delicious meals for which payment is required.  

The organisers would be pleased if EHOA members could volunteer time to host the Caunton Clubhouse facility. If you can spare a few hours over the weekend please email theehoa@gmail.com to let us know of your availability and give us a provisional idea of which day you may have time to help.  

There is further, new facility at Thoresby, the All Star B Enclosure, where for a charge of £85 per day (and £65 for competing owners) visitors can enjoy breakfast, lunch and tea, full event live streaming and talks from professional riders.  All the details are below. 

We are delighted to welcome a brand new enclosure to the event this year, which is based on the Formula 1 Paddock Club, The Allstar B Enclosure.  

Allstar B (Alby) was a firm part of Team GBR for many years with Ros Canter. Alby and Ros were crowed World Champions in 2018, following on from Team Gold at the Europeans the year before. Alby travelled to Tokyo as reserve in 2021 and were part of Team GBR Gold at the Europeans in 2021. Alby and Ros were regulars at many local events. The Allstar B Enclosure is recognition of Alby’s unique place in the Sport. 

The Allstar B Enclosure offers a warm and inviting location away from the weather and hustle of the showground. Enjoy being hosted within the hub of the action, just touching distance from the excitement of the cross country, and the thrills of the Show Jumping and Main Arena Attractions.  

The Allstar B Enclosure will be open on Sat 1st & Sun 2nd April. 

Alongside this prime location, you will be able to enjoy complimentary breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, along with CCTV of the cross country and guest speakers over the weekend, which include Dickie Waygood, Nicola Wilson, Ros Canter and Caroline Moore.  

We understand, that as owners, you are an integral part of the sport. By entering your horse into the International classes at Thoresby, we understand you have paid a much larger entry fee. Therefore as a small thank you for support of the Eventing Spring Carnival, we would like to offer you a

£20 discount on the Allstar B tickets.  

To claim this discount, please book your tickets via our website (linked below) and use the code INTOWNASB, within the promotion code at checkout.  

Please note that tickets for the Allstar B Enclosure are strictly limited and will close on Friday 17th March.  

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like further details. 
Many thanks

Team BEDE
