THIS weekend’s Chatsworth International Horse Trials event has been cancelled because of waterlogged ground.
The event was due to take place from May 11 to 13.
Chatsworth Horse Trials Director Tissie Reason said: “It’s a decision we’ve taken with great regret but water-logging around the course means that it cannot be used without compromising the safety of the riders and horses and that must be our greatest concern.
“We appreciate visitors who were planning to attend the event will be deeply disappointed, but I am sure they will understand why this decision was taken.”
The house, garden and farmyard remain open as usual, so anybody planning to visit Chatsworth this weekend can still enjoy a day out. For more information, visit www.chatsworth.org.
