Bolesworth cancels Bloomfields Horseboxes CDI 3* International Dressage
Bolesworth Events have unfortunately announced the cancellation of the Bloomfields Horseboxes CDI 3* International Dressage event, which was due to take place in the Estate’s grounds in Cheshire from the 24th to the 26th of June 2022.
What was a new dressage event, the show looked set to replicate the popular show jumping extravaganzas, but sadly, with rising costs of staging world class events, alongside current circumstances, the team have had no other choice but to cancel. While the event did have plenty of interest and support from dressage riders, at both national and international level, the business model is heavily reliant on public ticket sales and hospitality, not just entries, and the challenges of the current economic climate have inevitably affected both of these areas.
However, all is not a loss, as the event organisers have confirmed they are working closely with British Dressage and British Equestrian to see if there is a way of incorporating a condensed version of the CDI 3* Big Tour classes at the Dodson & Horrell Bolesworth International Horse Show in order to retain this valuable opportunity for international riders.
Unfortunately, the cancellation of the dressage has also forced the cancellation of the Elite Dressage Auction due to take place on Saturday 25th June.
Nina Barbour, managing director at Bolesworth said:
We apologise for those of you who have the Bolesworth Dressage event in your calendar and were looking forward to attending, especially those riders entered, who we know make plans well in advance, and really do understand the disappointment that this decision will cause. The Dodson & Horrell Bolesworth International Horse Show (29 June – 3 July), and the Al Shira’aa Bolesworth Young Horse Championships (10 – 14 August), are firmly fixed on the calendar. We look forward to welcoming riders, visitors, our sponsors, trade stands and supporters to both events.”
A member of the Bolesworth team will contact all the people who have entered the event or booked tickets, hospitality, or trade stands to arrange full refunds.
