The Dodson & Horrell Chatsworth International Horse Trials in Derbyshire, England kicks of the 2017 Event Rider Masters series this weekend. Thanks to the incredible power of technology, we can get a virtual preview of the CIC3* course through the innovative Cross Country App.
This year’s Ian Stark designed course has 33 efforts with an optimum time of 6 minutes 18 seconds. The time at Chatsworth is notoriously difficult to make (only two riders have ever actually made time on cross country–click here for 9 more fast facts about Chatsworth), but the pressure is on, with 40 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 with show jumping and cross country running in that order on Sunday. Don’t forget the entire competition will be live streamed for FREE on www.eventridermasters.tv. Go Eventing.
