Belvoir – Area 6 Arena Eventing Championships – 2nd Change of date to Friday 9th April UPDATE:
As the lockdown is continuing, and The Pony Club Spring Championships have been cancelled for 2021, we have made the decision to move our competition into that date.
This will not now be a qualifier for a National Championship, but will be an Area 6 Championship. We hope this will give members a good competition to aim for, hopefully once they are able to ride and train. We will keep monitoring changes in regulations.
If you have an existing entry:
it will be transferred automatically to the 9th April.
If you are not able or do not wish to compete, please cancel your entry asap within your horse-events account and your entry fee will be refunded, up to close of entries on Wednesday 31 March.

Depending on the weather, we would plan to hold the competition outdoors in April, to assist with Covid safe precautions.
