- Published: 07 September 2017
Weston Park is one of the Midlands premier venues, visitors are attracted from all over the world, home to the Earls of Bradford which today is run by a charitable foundation. Weston Park Horse Trials has experience stretching over 30 years' in show casing Championship level events with educational Cross Country Courses, respected for bold and encouraging beautifully built and dressed fences at all levels.
The weekend will be packed on Saturday the Blue Chip BE90 and the Blue Chip Central North West BE80(T) Challenge, Sunday the Rookery Park Novice sections including under 18's plus the Blue Chip BE100. Each day will run a Mitsubishi Regional Final which is a qualifier for the Badminton Grassroots Championship. The organisers of Weston Park Horse Trials are thrilled to be working with all our Sponsors.
The Blue Chip Central North West BE80(T) Challenge was designed to enhance the education of the BE80(T) competitor, attracting new competitors to British Eventing and last year provided the Grassroots of our sport within the region an exciting end to their season.
The challenge has run qualifiers within The Central North West at the 8 qualifying events
The final proved to be so popular with competitors that they had to be split into two sections with Blue Chip Feed providing a year's sponsorship to the winner of each section. This great prize will also include the winner starring in Blue Chip promotions. What a fantastic prize!
Clare Blaskey, founder of Blue Chip Feed, said "Blue Chip is thrilled to continue with their support of the Blue Chip BE80(T) Challenge. We were thrilled with last year's championship which had two great winners who Blue Chip are sponsoring this year. As a company we have always supported grassroots riders and Blue Chip BE80(T) Challenge is the perfect championship for riders starting out their eventing career."
One of last year's winners Chloe Fairley is delighted the Challenge is continuing and commented: "It is very exciting to hear that the wonderful Blue Chip Central North West BE80(T) Challenge is being held again in 2017 and with the final at the beautiful Weston Park. Winning was the highlight of 2016. The final at Weston Park had a real 'championship' feel. To be able to gallop around the stunning parkland and over such beautifully presented fences was a massive thrill.
It is testament to the excitement of the event that both my sister and husband have been inspired to have a go at qualifying for the championships. My husband only started riding in his late 30's and my sister hasn't competed for more than 10 years. There is going to be fierce competition in our yard to try and be the face of Blue Chip 2018!"
Our other section winner Georgia Butler commented: "Thank you so much to Blue Chip for running the Central North West BE80(T) Challenge. 2016 has been my first full season eventing since I was a teenager (approximately 25 years ago!!!) and the Challenge was absolutely tailor made for people like me."
Final comment from Chris Farr, BE Sport Operations Manager "The inaugural Blue Chip Central North West BE80(T) Challenge was an unqualified success with very deserving winners in Chloe Fairley and Georgia Butler. BE are delighted this initiative was so well supported in 2016 and we are sure 2017 will only see it grow. This is a great additional opportunity for members competing at the events involved in the challenge culminating in an exciting final at Weston Park (2)."
