Friday News Round Up

Its finally that time of year! The British event season kicks off.

BE has a notice about important information riders should read – British Eventing Notice.

This week has seen the awards handed out for the ESMAs. Winners include H&H, Burghley, Horse & Country TV and United States Equestrian Federation. The best place to see the winning videos is on ESMA Awards.

In case riders have missed it there has been several rule amendments by British Eventing – Rule Amendments. Many were summarised in our 15 rules you did not know about!

If you do nothing else today – make sure you sign the Event Riders Association petition about the new FEI rules. This might not affect you but it could in the future and it certainly might affect your trainer/friends etc. Petition – please sign! This petition is not just for UK based riders.
