The Dodson & Horrell Chatsworth International Horse Trials in Derbyshire, England kicks off the 2019 Event Rider Masters series this weekend. Thanks to our friends at Cross Country App, we can get a virtual preview of the CCI4*-S course. Visit the Cross Country App website for course walks of the Advanced, CCI4*-S Challenge and CCI2*-S as well.
This year’s Ian Stark designed course has 35 efforts with an optimum time of 6 minutes 16 seconds. The time at Chatsworth is notoriously difficult to make, but the pressure is on, with 30 horse and rider combinations vying for £50,000 in prize money at this event and a chance to win an additional £50,000 series bonus.
Dressage takes place today; show jumping starts at 3:15 p.m. BST/10:15 a.m. EST tomorrow, followed by cross country. Don’t forget the entire competition is being live streamed for free on www.eventridermasters.tv.
EN’s Tilly Berendt is on the grounds to bring you full reports, so keep it locked here! Go Eventing.
