Course Information

The course at Thoresby will be of good international standard. Following similar route to the 2020 ‘Thoresberton’ course it will make full use of great viewing on the lawns. We have re-routed some of the river meadow course to avoid the low lying flat and altered the finish route after the bridge. The course will be up to height, but designed as the first major run of the year for all levels. Riders need to be aware that the course on the lawn will have lots of atmosphere as it loops around the main arena and trade village.

Additional Prizes

Polly Phillips Memorial Trophy - £500 to the highest placed British Rider in the Grantham Cup, irrespective of their score, who has not yet represented Great Britain at Senior Championships (Olympic, World or European).

Animalintex Leading Rider - Points will be awarded to the top 6 placings in all classes across the event. Riders will accur points and each day an updated leaderboard will be available. The winner will be the rider who has accumulated the most points over the weekend, and they will be presented with a trophy at the final prize giving, along with money for the top three riders.

Winter Series Championships

The Dressage Championships will be taking place on Sunday 3rd April at The Eventing Spring Carnival. Entries will open on Monday 24th January 2022.

Winter Dressage Championships.
