UPDATE: Hickstead Summer Regionals

Subsequent to last week’s announcement about the cancellation of their International show, the team at Hickstead has been working with British Dressage to develop contingency plans. We can now confirm that Hickstead will be moving the Summer Regional Championship date to that of their cancelled CDI, 28 – 31 July. This move will give riders a bigger sense of occasion as it will be alongside the Longines Royal International Horse Show – a great opportunity for all.

The move also allows them to bring in Small Tour and Big Tour classes so the riders affected by the cancellation of the international show still have a chance to compete. Some of the International judges who’d been booked to officiate at the CDI have agreed to be involved so riders will have the chance to compete under top officials. These classes will be open to all, with priority given to those previously nominated for the CDIO3*/CDI2*.

This change, and further consolidation of fixtures at Hickstead, will help them ensure that the international show makes a welcome return in 2017.

As a result there are some alterations to the schedule for the Summer Regionals. Please therefore see the revised timetable below. A revised schedule will be available shortly.

BD Sport Operations Manager Paul Graham commented; “We appreciate that there will be some members who are affected by the date move. We have worked with Dane (Rawlins) as swiftly as possible to enable members to change their plans if necessary. We weighed up the options but to have a chance to run alongside the Royal International Horse Show was too good an opportunity to miss so members competing will have a truly special experience at their Regional Championships.”
