Our equine students did a great job providing the arena party for Bolesworth International last week. Our team of 40 staff and students were on duty in all three showjumping arenas for the four full days of action and loved working alongside world class course designers Bob Ellis and Kelvin Bywater. Bolesworth has invested thousands of pounds to build up this exciting event into a 3 star competition which attracted riders from 13 nations. Riders were delighted with the new international arena, set in an amphitheatre with a surface formerly used for the London 2012 Olympics.
Founder Nina Barbour is now planning to boost the event to 4 star and has already set next year’s dates of 18 – 21 June. She said: “Reaseheath’s arena party were extremely competent and professional. We really appreciated their teamwork, which helped us to deliver showjumping at its highest level.”
