Aston-le-Walls is to host a further British Eventing fixture for 2016 at the venue near Daventry on 4 - 5 November. This decision to allow an additional fixture for 2016 was made by the Sport Committee, following a request from the Board.
“This is very much a pilot event since normally the season closes the same weekend as the clocks change. This has been the case for many years since the viability of events is significantly affected by the considerably shortened daylight hours. British Eventing will be reviewing the policy about extending the season in the coming months,” said CEO of British Eventing, David Holmes.
The event at Aston-le-Walls will hold Airowear BE80(T), BE90, BE90 Open, BE100 and BE100 Open classes. The entries have now opened and the standard entry process applies with an amended ballot policy, which will be published on the Aston-le-Wall's webpage on BDWP (www.bdwp.co.uk).
