It’s the eve of the NAF Five Star Winter Championships! Here at Hartpury, horses and riders are arriving, we’ve had our first arena walks, the tradestands are stocked and the stage is set.

Around 725 riders will be competing nearly 900 horses over five days with classes from Prelim to Inter I in Silver and Gold in the Winter Championships and Bronze and Silver in the Petplan Equine Winter Area Festival Championships – with special sections for riders under 21 from Prelim to Medium.

We’re launching our new clothing and merchandise range this week so if you’re onsite as part of a competitor bubble, visit the BD tradestand to have special preview. We have a range of samples and you can order with us straight through a tablet with our suppliers Kinect. The website will be coming online this week for everyone else but we’ll be sharing some images across our social media this week so keep checking. 

You may have caught our strategy launch on Friday and Jason Brautigam, our Chief Executive, will be on the stand each day at lunchtime to answer any questions.

Our social feeds are also THE best place to follow from afar with all the news, views and action from the 40 classes at Hartpury. Our news feed will also have daily reports with quotes from all our champions and the story behind their win.

If you’re not able to join us at Hartpury, you won’t miss a minute of the action as our preferred streaming partner Horse & Country are covering all three arenas via their H&C+ platform. You’ll need to be a subscriber to view but it’s quick and simple to join. There’s no contract involved and you can subscribe on a monthly basis for £5.99 per month or yearly at just £59.99.
