Riding Club and Pony Club Team Eventer Challenges sponsored by Dodson & Horrell

The 90cm and 100cm Riding Club and Pony Club Team Eventer Challenges are kindly sponsored by Dodson & Horrell. These very popular events are grass-arena-based competitions, held in the Bladon and Hensington Arenas, over a testing course of show jumps and cross-country fences with an optimum time for completion. The team with the lowest cumulative score are the winners, and there is also an award for the most stylish rider.

The Riding Club competition will take place on Thursday 13th September, and the Pony Club competition will take place on Friday 14th September. 

Please note: Due to the popularity of the eventer challenge classes at Blenheim, no horse or rider may compete in more than one eventer challenge competition at the SsangYong Blenheim Palace Horse Trials.
