A lot has gone on in the area, since we held the qualifiers at Tanners Hall Farm.
Teams that did not qualify for Lincoln, had the opportunity to go to Northern Regional Championships, which were held at Bishop Burton College on 27th August 2016, The whole of the East coast, areas 2, 4, and 16 put their teams forward, both juniors and seniors. We had accommodation, stabling, excellent facilities, the show jumping arena, and enough space for five arenas with plenty of warm up room. Horse boxes parked near the dressage arenas, and those that stayed, parked near their stabling. The feed back we have had was, can we do this again. Lots of thanks must go to the organising committee, helpers, judges.
