College hosts new national horse trials
A college in Yorkshire has hosted a new national horse trials event, equine insurance policyholders have been told.
Askham Bryan College in York developed a 2,800 metre course specifically for the competition, which attracted riders from all over the UK, the York Press reported.
The event included dressage, showjumping and cross-country stages, and was created to build assurance in horse insurance customers.
Organiser Philip Grant told the newspaper: "It's designed for young horses or more inexperienced riders who are looking to move up next season, so hopefully the course and the day itself will inspire confidence."
Mr Grant added that the college is keen to build on the day's success with future events.
Last week, ThisIsTheWestCountry.co.uk reported that a charity riding day has been arranged in the Godolphin, Millpool and Tregonning Hill area, as a way to raise money for bridleway maintenance to improve the safety of horse insurance policyholders.
