Following the sad news recently announced that Port Eliot will no longer be hosting a British Eventing fixture, we are pleased to confirm that Bicton Arena will now host the South West Regional Grassroots Championship on 3 – 4 August 2024 and in 2025. This follows an expression of interest for a replacement venue which British Eventing put out last month, and a final decision was made by the BE Fixtures Committee.

Helen West, Bicton Arena’s Co-Director commented, “We really feel for our friends at Port Eliot but will do our absolute best to put on a much-needed grassroots fixture in the South West for BE members. We are excited to host the Regional Championship competition and give as many competitors the opportunity to ride around the stunning parkland here at Bicton.”

Event Organiser at Port Eliot, Tamsyn Hutchins added, “Thank you to all the members, Port Eliot Estate and Lady Bianca who have supported us for the last decade. It is another blow for the South West calendar, but I am thrilled that Bicton is stepping in to provide an alternative option for members in our region.”

Entries will open shortly, so do keep an eye on the British Eventing website for more information.
