Cross Country Riders Aim For Trophies

More than 150 riders and horses will be at Wickstead Farm Equestrian Centre, Highworth, near Swindon for this month's South Essex Insurance Brokers/The British Horse Society Cross Country Championship.

More than 50 qualifying events have been held throughout the country for the event on September 27 and 28, which gives many British Horse Society members their first taste of cross country competition.

The championship is divided into novice and open competition with a third class for pairs. Novice and pairs will be contested on Saturday with the open class on Sunday.

South Essex Insurance Brokers marketing manager Nicolina MacKenzie said: "We are supporting this event because it encourages novice riders as well as those more experienced in cross country riding.

"A great part of our client base comes from the grass roots of the equestrian world and we welcome this championship because it provides them with something to aim at and enjoy."

All finalists will get a South Essex Salver, while winners will take home trophies and other prizes.
