Clear Round SJ Cancelled Tuesday 12th September & Car Park Locked

Regrettably, due to the imminent threat of travellers in the local area (bought to our attention by West Midlands Police) tonight’s clear round showjumping (Tuesday 12th September) is cancelled.

Also the main car park will be locked at 18:00 each night until further notice. Cars which are onsite at this time will remain secure until 07:00 the following morning.

We are grateful for your understanding at this time and apologise for the inconvenience.

Members Field Closed

Due to the annual Scouts Association Jamboree, (2000 scouts camping on the left hand side of the driveway) the Members / XC Training Field will be closed from Wednesday 13th to Tuesday 19th September as they will be using it for their activities.

The Boundary Ride will remain open throughout and the second indoor arena is still available free of charge for members.

 

Weekend closures

Just a reminder that the Boundary Ride will be closed from Saturday 9th to Monday 11th September to enable us to run the Unaffiliated One Day Event sponsored by Skilts Farm Stables on Sunday.

The Members Field will also be closed on Sunday due to using it as an overflow car park if necessary.

Can we ask all dog walkers to ensure that ALL DOGS are kept on leads on the grounds on Sunday during the event.

Please note that the Boundary Ride will be closed from Thursday 17th to Monday 21st August, reopening on Tuesday 22nd after the British Eventing Horse Trials that we are holding this weekend.
