An extraordinarily wet year continues to wreak havoc on the British eventing calendar, as Northumberland’s Burgham International Horse Trials announced today that, in the interest of maintaining the footing for this weekend’s international classes, they would be forced to cancel tomorrow’s national Novice classes.
“In order to preserve the best possible ground conditions for the International CCI 4*-S (Jumping & Cross-Country running Saturday 29th July) & CCI 2*-S (Jumping & Cross-Country running Sunday 30th July), we have taken the decision to cancel the BE National Classes scheduled for Saturday 29th July (Novice O, P & Open Novice Q),” reads the statement published via British Eventing. “The weather is currently drying and we are hopeful that we can run the Sunday BE National classes as planned alongside the CCI 4*-S & CCI 2*-S classes. More information on refunds will follow early next week. Thank you for your patience and understanding with the challenging weather.”
Burgham is well underway, with BE100, Novice, and Intermediate classes running yesterday, the CCI3*-S currently midway through its cross-country finale, and CCI2*-S and CCI4*-S dressage continuing on apace today.
