British Show Jumping
SPONSORED BY OUR PRINCIPAL PARTNER STRATSTONE
For glamour and excitement, nothing beats Show Jumping. Add the backdrop of a beautiful stately home, set in fine parkland on the banks of the River Tyne, and the scene is set.
With the success of the Show Jumping over the last 4 years the committee have increased the area that the show jumping will be held on and will open the classes up to more competitors across the North of England holding again its successful National 1.30 open class which should keep the crowd on the endge of their seats.
We are pleased to have our sponsors Lloyds Ltd continued support in the 1.10m and 1.20m classes.
Paul Chester and Helen Chisholm section organisers, said, “We are delighted that Northumberland County Show is so popular on the British Showjumping show calendar. One of our core aims has been to bring our sport back into the centre of thriving communities providing great shows for our riders.”
Day tickets will be available at the show for those exhibitors who want to participate but are not members of the BSJA. There are classes for Senior British Novice, Discovery, National Amateur, Senior Newcomer and Foxhunter.
We are delighted to announce our judges for 2017- the well renowned Keith McVittie, Linda Watson and Stephen Pitt judging and a fantastic course builder Tracy Strangeways.
