It’s just over a week until the first Harry Hall One Club ACE Championships at Aintree International Equestrian Centre!
New for 2023, the Anyone Can Event (ACE) Championship Series hosted by British Eventing and sponsored by Harry Hall One Club, has offered numerous championship leg qualifiers throughout the UK during the winter months of 2022/23. The arena-style set-up with a height of 70cm-1m, aims to encourage people into the sport and is open to anyone who is BE registered, aged 10 upwards. The exciting initiative, which has been described as a stepping stone into the sport of eventing, separates classes into two categories, seniors (18 and over), alongside juniors.
The Harry Hall Ace Championship Schedule
The four-day Ace Championship celebration, held on Thursday 1st June through Sunday 4th, will offer a host of prizes and goodies for all competitors.

Liz Hopper, CEO of Harry Hall explains
As equestrians, we’re delighted to be supporting the ACE series and Championships with British Eventing. We’re horse owners and riders too and we understand that this is a lifestyle, not a hobby. That’s why, in 2017, we created the One Club where our members benefit from our mission to make horse ownership more affordable. We’ve been helping horse owners for over 130 years and we’re delighted to be encouraging today’s riders to go Eventing with the Harry Hall One Club ACE Championships.
We’re really looking forward to the ACE Championships and to celebrating everyone’s achievements”.
