Bramham To Host CIC3*
Wetherby, West Yorkshire, UK
Since Sunday British Eventing staff have been liaising with event organisers, the FEI and riders to find another venue in the North East Region to host the CIC 3* that was lost from the eventing calendar when the second day (Sunday 17 May) of Chatsworth International Horse Trials was cancelled due to the wet weather.
"The CIC 3* is a crucial class for many horse and rider combinations seeking advancement, or looking for vital qualifying runs in order to enter CCI 3* competitions," says British Eventing Sport Manager, Debbie Marfell.
"We are pleased to announce that Bramham International Horse Trials (11-14 June) in Yorkshire will host a CIC 3* class, which it will run alongside its existing CCI 3* Senior and Under 25 Championship competitions.
"Riders entered at Chatsworth will automatically have the opportunity of competing at Bramham. We know this will not help the dozen or so riders that had hoped to gain qualification at Chatsworth to run in the CCI 3* at Bramham, but sadly there are no other British venues holding a CIC 3* in the next three weeks.
"Our thanks go to the team at Bramham International Horse Trials who have pulled out all the stops to make this happen in just a few short weeks from now."
Bramham Event Director Nicholas Pritchard said: "The whole team is looking forward to the challenge, and to welcoming CIC 3* competitors to Bramham. I am delighted that we are able to assist the sport in such a positive way."
"The Park is looking marvellous at present and with the addition of the CIC 3* we will be ensured of a fantastic weekend of sport."
