Press Release- Championships updates 14th March

In order to keep everyone as covid-safe as possible and adhere to government guidelines, the NSEA has decided to move some of the major championships finals that were due to be held over the past year, to the All England Jumping Course, Hickstead.
We hope to make these competitions an opportunity to have fun and compete with many friends that have not been seen for a while. There will be on-site stabling and camping with plenty of space to social distance.
Come and join us at one of the most prestigious equestrian venues in the world.
