What time does BS start tomorrow (2march) at Markfield Equestrian Centre, Leics?

They have two schedules showing on their page, one says 9.30 and the other says 10.30. Neither of them are dated 2 March.

I emailed them but have not had a reply.

I have tried phoning them, but it is automated, choosing the show office, the phone just rings, and then trying again and choosing list of events, gets you a guy listing a schedule for 8 December!

It is quite a distance from me so i don't want to be late, but equally I don't want to be there an hour early.

Anyone know?

Thanks.

That schedule was on their website :) Just scroll down on their "shows and events" page.

Unless they have qualifiers - which I don't think they do this weekend - that is your schedule :) when they have qualifiers they upload a different schedule (like the one they have dated for 26th jan at the top of the shows and events page, because it had a qualifier).

Hope I helped! Markfield are a bit of a nightmare to be honest...

It's not the snazziest/fanciest of venues....but they build good up to height courses, and my horses have always jumped well there. They have a nice massive concrete car park though :) Surface in arenas isn't amazing, the warm up is small when busy, and the main arena is slightly dull (lighting wise) - but it has a relaxed atmosphere and I weirdly like it as a venue!

Good luck :)
