Please note entries will not be accepted unless accompanied by passport/vaccination records. The organisers also need an army of helpers to make the event happen, so all members and supporters are encouraged to head down for a horsey weekend and volunteer to help whilst there.
Any RC member interested in competing should contact Davina Johnston who is gathering names. If you let her know what level and discipline you are interested in. This is just to gauge interest at this stage - you're not committing yourself to anything yet.
