We are delighted to be crowning under 18 Grass Roots Champions at the Savills Chillington Hall Regional & Youth Championships 9th-10th September 2023.
The organisers of Chillington Hall Area Festival are excited to be working with returning Title Sponsors, Savills, to deliver a first-class weekend of sport to British Eventing Competitors and spectators. “Savills are delighted to be supporting Chillington Hall Horse Trials for a second year as headline sponsors. With a strong presence throughout the Midlands, we are always keen to support local communities and initiatives and we look forward to welcoming as many people to the event as possible to the event”, says Savills Associate, Emma Davis.
The excitement of this year’s event will see competitors travel from across the country and culminate with the crowning of the Ethos BE80 & BE90 u18 champions and winning teams. Competitors will compete as an individual but will also represent their regions in teams as they will have earned their places on the team following a season of hard work and performing at their best across qualifying events.
The event will similarly see competitors travel from afar to compete in Regional Championship National Qualifiers; The Rowen Barbary BE80RCNQ, The Rookery Park BE90RCNQ and Landsbrook Stud BE100RCNQ, which will qualify the top 10% of competitors for Bramham (BE80) and Badminton (BE90 & BE100). Destinations of every Eventer’s dreams. In addition to RCNQ classes the event will also be hosting OpenRC classes across all three levels sponsored kindly by Boultons Arenas.
Following on from last year’s event the organising team are happy to open slightly shorter tracks to those who have not been fortunate enough to qualify for the Championships. Organiser Vicky Plant says “last year was the first time we opened all three tracks up to non-qualified combinations. This made the event more inclusive for local competitors that love this special venue, and it was fantastic to see so many of them galloping around the event and enjoying this exclusive estate”.
Chillington Hall is located on the Staffordshire / Shropshire border and has been the home of the Giffard family for over 800 years. The Estate has an intriguing history, and the parkland, designed by Capability Brown, is a treasure of untouched beauty. Why not come and explore the delights that this elite estate holds.
