A serious competitors venue returns, one other doubtful, and extra issues the horse world is speaking about

  • Competition returns to Addington

    A new lease has been taken out at Addington Equestrian, which had hosted significant showjumping and dressage events but has been closed since before the Covid pandemic hit. The new team at the Buckinghamshire venue is poised for the return of competition – and is “in it for the long haul”. Competition will be across disciplines and the first events in the calendar will be British Showjumping training shows over the winter.

    The future of point-to-pointing at Larkhill is uncertain beyond this season, unless the Ministry of Defence reverses its decision to close the racecourse. Racing has operated at Larkhill for 75 years, with the course’s history dating back even further, and it is a vital venue in point-to-pointing’s winter fixture list. It is also home to eventing fixtures and is a training venue – these activities will be affected by, but not necessarily tied to, the future of the racecourse.
