Following last week’s announcement from British Showjumping that Bolesworth will be the new venue for the Official NAF Five Star British Showjumping National Championships, we are delighted to announce that entries will be open this evening (Wednesday 15th Juy).

Taking place from Monday 3rd August – Tuesday 11th August 2020, the Official NAF Five Star British Showjumping National Championships including the Just For Schools, Club & Junior Academy National Championships, the competition is a key date in the British Showjumping equestrian calendar.

Due to the unprecedented circumstances, a number of classes have been opened up for direct entry to all members, however most finals have been incorporated in the schedule with existing qualification still standing.  Entries must be made online via the Equipe platform here.

Said Nina Barbour “We are delighted to be supporting British Showjumping to host all three Championship Shows across nine days of jumping.

Since the lifting of the restrictions we have been supporting the industry back into competition with our Al Shiraa’a Summer Series Training Shows;  throughout June and July that have seen fantastic support from local competitors in the region.

Our Training Shows will continue right up until the weekend before our Al Shiraa’a Bolesworth Young Horse Championships in August. We understand riders needs and want to provide the opportunity for riders to get their horses competition ready as soon as possible. Some European countries have been up and running training shows for several weeks now and we don’t want to leave British riders on the back foot. 

The team here at Bolesworth have been working hard in collaboration with British Showjumping to ensure that the show will run in accordance with Government Guidance around COVID-19 and are looking forward to providing a safe environment for all to compete.” Said Nina Barbour, Managing Director of Bolesworth.
