Event details

  • Friday | 17th August 2018 to Tuesday | 21st August 2018
  • 8:00 am
  • Cholmondeley Castle, SY14 8AH


Qualifying does not automatically guarantee an onsite stable.

Musketeer Event Management and The Pony Club will do our utmost to try and accommodate everyone, however onsite stabling is limited. Once full we can offer details of local stabling, but it is your responsibility to organise this directly with the host.

Musketeer Event Management reserves the right to close entries for onsite stabling at any time before the closing date – DateTBC.

Ideally on-site stabling and camping should be booked within 24 hours of qualifying for the Championships.

Please do not book unnecessary nights stabling if you are not going to occupy them, this may result in others not having the opportunity to stable onsite. In addition stabling must not be booked prior to receiving a qualification for the Championships

Musketeer Event Management will try to allocate competitors next to their Pony Club Branches and Areas where possible, however this is not guaranteed

No refunds for stabling or camping will be issued after Date TBC.  Any withdrawals prior to this date will potentially only be eligible for refunds where a veterinary certificate or other relevant documentation can be provided. All refunds will be issued within three weeks post event

Musketeer Event Management and The Pony Club will not tolerate any threatening or verbal abuse. Any such behaviour will be reported and may result in the disqualification of The Pony Club concerned and removal from the site.

If you amend your booking at a later date, please be aware this may affect your original booking.
