We are working hard behind the scenes in readiness for resumption of Equestrian activity at Bicton Arena. Any recommencement plans will be carefully thought out and fully in line with Estate policy. Clinton Devon Estates is a family business, responsible for the stewardship of some of the most beautiful surroundings in Devon. The Estate operates a balanced scorecard with a carefully aligned portfolio of businesses within it. During the COVID-19 crisis it is more important than ever that all aspects of the Estate share the same strategic priorities.

With this in mind we are developing a robust system of protocols in line with both Government guidelines and those of the National Governing Bodies of Equestrian Sport. On the re-commencement of Equestrian activity, the main focus will be on social distancing in order to protect the health and safety of the Bicton Arena Team, Estate staff and our valued customers. We are looking at operating a one-way system throughout the site which will be stewarded to prevent any areas of congestion. Our key objective is to enable all who visit the site to feel safe.

Following British Showjumping’s most recent update we have sadly cancelled the Pony Premier Showjumping Show which was due to take place on June 19th – 21st. It is our intention for a staged re-introduction of Equestrian activity to commence at Bicton Arena from July 1st 2020. However please be aware this will be reviewed regularly and could be subject to change in line with the Government advice given.

We would like to say a big thank you to all of you for your support, patience and understanding during this difficult time and we trust that you are looking forward to the resumption of Equestrian activity here as much as we are.

The Bicton Arena Team
