Warm Up & Competing
There will be a maximum of 5 riders allowed in the main warm up arena with no pedestrians. Please do not try to enter on foot. There will be two warm up jumps (cross pole/upright and oxer) and a steward available to alter the jumps.
Lead Rein entries will be accepted in Class 1 & 2. Please state on the entry if you are a lead rein entry and we will allocate your time to ensure the maximum number is not breached within the warm up.
We will operate a grass flatwork warm up area, allowing a maximum of 6 riders (no pedestrians) in. These will not have a steward, so you are responsible
for ensuring you follow the one way system to the main warm up.
Access to the main warm up is via the road, so please do not wait in the road or the lorry park entrance to be allowed into the warm up. There will be a small waiting area by the road that you can walk around until you are allowed in. Please only WALK in this area. You will go straight from the main warm up into the ring and once you have completed your round, you will be allowed out through the gates at the opposite end of the ring to ensure a one way system is maintained. Please be mindful of maintaining social distancing when crossing back into the lorry park.
Do not use the pre warm up more than 30 minutes before your time so that the flow of riders can be maintained to ensure we run to time. Times must be strictly adhered to and competitors must compete in order of allocated times.
There will be a course walk before each class. Only competitors will allowed to walk the course. No children on the arena or walking the course unless competing. Please walk the course as quickly as possible and observe a distance of 2 metres from others at all times.
Once you have ridden, please load up your horses and leave the venue. Results will be posted online and rosettes will be posted out after the event.
Please help us to keep shows running for you. It is essential that the government guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic around social distancing are strictly adhered to for the successful continuation of equestrian sports. Anyone found not to be adhering may be asked to leave the site. Thank you for your co-operation.
