IMPORTANT: Welsh & Southern Regionals

The organisers of the upcoming Welsh (Mount Ballan, 22 - 24 July) and Southern (Hickstead, 28 - 31 July) Regional Championships have been in touch with some important information for competitors. 

Mount Ballan

The M48 Severn Bridge Crossing (old bridge) will be closed in both directions due to maintenance on Saturday (23 July) and Sunday (24 July) during Mount Ballan Summer Regionals. Please amend your route to the showground accordingly. The M4 Second Severn Crossing will be open as usual.  Bridge travel info - click here.


The postcode for the Dressage at Hickstead entrance is BN6 9HR. (Ignore the horsebox signs at the Burgess Hill exit and continue along the A23 to the next exit signposted Hickstead Showground and Sayers Common. At the mini roundabout by the Friday Ad building, turn right and the entrance is via big blue gates approximately 150 metres in your left.

It's strongly advised that you arrive with your horsebox before 10AM as the traffic for the Royal International could cause up to a 2 hour delay which could mean you miss your test. This has happened in the past and we would hate for it to happen to you!

Anyone stabling it is advised to arrive between 6am and 10am or between 4pm and 8pm. 

Don't forget - our Hickstead ball is taking place on the Saturday night in aid of Chestnut Tree House and Dream flight children’s charities. For mor info - click here.
