Round 1 round-up Maiden Marne Blackdyke Farm Indoor Arena Eventing 30th Oct

A near capacity turnout of 92 competitors enjoyed the first of 5 Indoor Arena Eventing fixtures organised jointly by Cumbria Horse Trials and Blackdyke Farm yesterday. There were wins for Melissa Cairns (65cm), Katie Chapman (75cm), Andrew Hewitt (85cm) and Susie Chapplehow Lacy (95cm) over John Collier’s 17 fence courses of mixed show jumps and portable XC fences. The standard of presentation from entrants was good in what is a challenging competition judging the optimum time and meeting the fences in a balanced way.  Most entrants make use of their first class to set up for a higher level and it is noticeable the improvement as they relax into their second round.  Thank you to the Blackdyke Arena Team ensuring the day runs smoothly and so professionally.  Images of all the action may be found on


Next up is Round 2 on Sunday 27th Nov
