Additional date added to the 2016 fixtures

On Friday 4th and Saturday 5th November 2016 Aston-le-Walls, near Daventry, will host the final BE event of this year from at Airowear BE80(T), BE90 and BE100 levels. Entries for the Northamptonshire event open today (Friday 7th October 2017) and will provide Airowear BE80(T), BE90, BE90Open, BE100 and BE100Open classes, offering members with the opportunity to compete past the usual season closing date of the end of October.

The standard entry process will apply for this extra date and an amended ballot policy will be published on the Aston le Walls webpage on BDWP (www.bdwp.co.uk). With only four weeks until the event we encourage any riders wishing to take this opportunity to enter as soon as possible.

David Holmes, CEO of British Eventing commented “This is very much a pilot event since normally the season closes the same weekend as the clocks change. This has been the case for many years since the viability of events is significantly affected by the considerably shortened daylight hours. British Eventing will be reviewing the policy about extending the season in the coming months.”

Nigel Taylor commented, “We are looking forward to offering the members a further event in the season, as always all dressage and show jumping will be on all weather surfaces. We look forward to seeing you here!”
