Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th of June 2010 sees the first of the Ascott-under-Wychwood British Eventing One-Day Event of the season.
The classes being run are:
BE 90 (Open), a special class for retrained racehorses
BE 100 (Open)
It will be a busy weekend, entries have already been received for 589 horse and rider combinations, and although some sections are now closed, other sections are still taking entries.
The organisers of Ascott-under-Wychwood One Day Event are seeking volunteers to help run the Event.
Dressage writers, cross-country fence judges, show-jumping arena party, marshals and stewards are the backbone of any competition like this.
And more are always needed.
For equestrian types, any volunteer will receive one free cross-country schooling session on the Ascott-under-Wychwood cross-country course worth £20.
All volunteers will get free food and drink (and a bottle of wine) – whether they’re equestrian types or not! – and the opportunity to watch a bunch of clever horses do smart things.
I will be spending several hours on Sunday, sitting in a car helping to judge dressage.
If you’re interested in helping out, let me know and I’ll pass your interest on.
