    arenas that are no more

    Capt Mark Philips asked me to hold his horse for him while he went to the loo, he bought me a hotchocolate to say thank you! When the Edgars came it was a nightmare as Ted would only ever put his initials on the board and he would have about five horses in it, used to drive us mad!

    arenas that are no more

    Yarkhill was called West Mercia Equestrian Centre and run by Pam & Gad Avnon, Gad's parents used to run the cafe. Bartestree is Sheepcote, it was then owned by Mrs Buckley who rented the stables and surfaces out to David Pincus (he now owns it). Yarkhill was such a waste, there were loads of...

    Askham Bryan ballot list up!

    If you have too many entries you close the entries at ballot. Then you have the very difficult job of balloting out people until you reduce the entries to your maximum number. You start with the lowest level and ballot out those horses and riders with day tickets (and anyone who has been very...

    Askham Bryan ballot list up!

    you can "legally" run 292 per day (no idea why it is this random number). But at this time of year running 270 in a day will be pretty tight for daylight hours and doesn't allow for any stoppages on course. I am suprised they didn't run an extra day even if it was just for the money.

I would insist that all over-subscribed events carry a waitlist, which people are put onto in order of being balloted, and...
