Blackdyke Winter Arena Eventing Series

Back for another year is our fun indoor mixed round of cross country type obstacles along with show jumps numbering upto 18 fences and jumped at around 300-350 mpm.  Blackdyke Farm Riding and Competition Centre provides a relaxed venue and a safe environment for well organised competitions providing exact start times and running on the third Sunday every month from November to March.  The courses remain the same across the classes but the obstacles change and incease in technical difficulty as the classes progress – the 65-70cm class is very much an introduction to Arena Eventing.  As ever, the Cafe will be available and Grossick Photography will be in attendance.  Live Scores will be seen on the TV screen in the Cafe.
