British Riding Clubs have once again taken out abandonment insurance for the championships that have a greater likelihood of being subject to weather related abandonment. These championships are: the Arena Eventing, the National Horse Trials and the National Championships. This insurance covers these events in the case of abandonment due to adverse weather conditions. Should any of these three events be cancelled due to adverse weather conditions, and the insurance policy conditions are satisfied, then all championship entry fees and stable booking fees will be refunded in full. This excludes all pre-entry fees for the championship, and area entry fees for the associated qualifiers. For all other BRC events, the refund policy as detailed in the current BRC Handbook will stand.
Below is a taster of what to expect at the NAF Five Star Horse Trials Championships - we hope to see you there!
