Design a jubilee jump for Nunney International Horse Trials
All too often, as spectators, we stand in awe of a cross country fence, especially those seen at events such as Nunney International Horse Trials! But, could you imagine seeing your own jump standing on the track of the cross country course leaving not only you gasping with surprise, but top riders too?! Well, here’s your chance to do exactly that!
Nunney International Horse Trials have announced they intend to join in on the celebrations of HRH The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee by inviting you to design a fence for its event which takes place on June 17, 18 and 19.
Course designer Adrian Ditcham said anything goes for the fence which will be incorporated into the cross country courses. He said:
It’s a wonderful way to celebrate such an important milestone, and we’re looking forward to seeing the entries.
Crowns, carriages, palaces, thrones, anything goes. We want people to use their imaginations and if it’s original and different we’ll build it.”
We held a similar competition at Nunney in 2012 to celebrate The Queen’s Golden Jubilee and we had some fantastic entries.”
As if the prize of seeing your own design come to life wasn’t good enough, the winner will also gain free entry to Nunney on all three days, enjoy lunch for two in the sponsors marquee on either Saturday or Sunday and a guided course tour.
Nunney’s organiser Bridget Parker said:
This is a lovely way for Nunney to join in these unique celebrations. It’s such a popular event in Somerset, and we’re delighted this year that we can welcome spectators back to enjoy a really great competition, set in the wonderful grounds of Southfield House.”
Entries close on Wednesday, May 18 and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Classes at this year’s Nunney include the new Intermediate Masters, and international three star and two star sections. Some of the most familiar faces from the world of eventing are expected to be in action. There will be a range of trade stands and food outlets. Entry to the event is free on Friday and £12 per car on Saturday and Sunday and well behaved dogs on leads are welcome.
