Important News


Notice to all Members of Eventing Canterbury
We desperately need your help!!
Next weekend we are running our One Day Horse Trial at the Savill property in Amberley – an event most riders and spectators enjoy because the terrain is spectacular and different to that offered on the flat at Mclean’s Island. Because many people – riders, supporters and officials - are involved with Horse of the Year now that it runs the same weekend as Amberley, we are seriously short of helpers. In order to run the event we need anyone who has an interest in Eventing Canterbury to please come out and help – as of today we have 2 fence judges, and only one offer of help to put up both the dressage arenas and the show jumping course. We are committed to running events for our riders but to continue to do so we need more help. If you are approached by a member of our hard working committee to assist, please try and be prepared to do a job – if you cannot manage it, a friend or young rider not yet competing may welcome the chance to be involved. We do not want to face the possibility of not being able to run at Amberley in the future. Please pass this message on, and contact our event secretary at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you are able to help.
With thanks,
Bruce Taylor
Chairman, Eventing Canterbury
