Eventing Spring Carnival Cancelled for 2021

BEDE Events announced on Friday (29/1/2021) that this year’s Eventing Spring Carnival which was set to run at Thoresby Park, April 1 to 3 will not go-ahead.

Led by BEDE’s Stuart Buntine, the organisers have been monitoring the situation closely but in recent days it is becoming ever more clear that it is unlikely COVID-19 restrictions will ease very soon.

Said Stuart:

Thoresby Park is a fantastic venue and we were very relieved when we were able to re-route the autumn Osberton International Horse Trials to the venue.

We ran what quickly became known as ‘Thoresberton’ to much praise from riders, owners and sponsors thanks to the efforts of Thoresby Park’s, Gregor Pierrepont and the team.

In order to run The Eventing Spring Carnival in April, work needed to start in early February, which has meant we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event and plan towards a bigger and better 2022.

As ever at BEDE Events we are a positive team and are sure our busy calendar of fixtures will get underway before we know it, but in order for riders to plan their season we felt they needed to be kept in the loop.

It is very sad for Gregor and the team at Thoresby Park as they have been a brilliant support and this is the second year that the virus has led to cancellation of the spring event but let’s hope 2022 is third time lucky.

Of course we are very aware that whilst the sport is central to our lives and those of our competitors it is vital that we support the efforts to rid the country of this pandemic.”

Added Gregor:

Over the last two years we’ve done everything that could be done to make the inaugural Eventing Spring Carnival at Thoresby Park the best it can be, and we remain determined it will launch in 2022 with a bang.

The autumn event at Thoresby really showcased our strengths as a venue, with massive potential to put on a truly international event. We are determined to get there and look forward to welcoming everyone as soon as we can.”

The BEDE team are now continuing to work closely with British Eventing to look at alternative dates for their Oasby Horse Trials event, with the aim of giving competitors an early-season run with classes from BE90 to Intermediate level.
