Some of the world’s top event riders will contest Pontispool Equine Sports Centre’s second British Eventing affiliated event of the year which takes place on September 15 and 16 and is sponsored by Equestrian Surfaces.

The event attracts nearly 900 horses and riders who will be competing in dressage, show jumping and cross country and with trade stands around the main arena, food outlets and a café, the event is a popular destination for horse lovers from across the region.

The Rotary Club will once again be manning the gates and a percentage of proceeds be donated to a nominated charity.

Each year thousands of pounds are raised with charities like the Children’s Hospice’s Its Child’s Play appeal and Shelter Box benefitting.

The action gets underway at 8.30am on both days and continues until the evening. More information can be found at
