All the latest news from Cumbria Horse Trials
5 fabulous British Eventing Affiliated Horse Trials
at two wonderful venues
Douglas & Lucinda Weymouth. Organisers of The Cumbria Horse Trials Series
Since 2003 we have organised horse trials in Cumbria and fit these into everyday family life with four children and the usual accompaniment of horses, dogs, chickens and friends. We don’t own a property large enough to establish a permanent base for any events and rely on the goodwill of amenable landowners located within easy reach of the M6 motorway. Sandy ground with well aerovated and luscious grass is fundamental for what we do. We usually see 500 horses competing every 4 weeks or so throughout the season and for the two of us this quiet enough. Our army of unsung volunteers is critical to ensure there is stewarding, controlling and scoring and there is usually 1 volunteer for every 2 competitors. Our tolerant Officials from British Eventing put in some very long days and guide us calmly to ensure the day is as safe as it can be for everyone. Finding sponsors brave enough to place their business name against the sport and support the cost of running these events is always appreciated. Entry fees alone do not ensure they are viable and sustainable and so we also welcome our trade stand holders and as many members of the public we can get through the gates . Outdoor events are challenging and in the past 12 months we have seen them run with a wind chill factor of -10 and a day lost in the drought! We look forward to 2019 and hope you will join us.
