Amateur riders have chance at Hickstead

The All England Jumping Championships starts at Hickstead tomorrow, Thursday, and runs until the final day on Sunday, September 9.

Along with two different sections for amateur riders at 1.10m and 1.20m level, there is something for every calibre of national rider from 1m up to a Grand Prix with a £6,000 prize fund.

Crucially, this show offers more than 300 riders, many of them first-timers, the opportunity to gain invaluable experience in the famous International Arena.

Introduced in 2011, this show received enormously positive response.

Entry to the showground and car parking is absolutely free for all spectators who are welcome to go along and support the equine stars of tomorrow.

There will also be the opportunity to enter Hickstead’s competition to win a weekend stay plus flights to the g Hotel in Galway.
