Hopetoun Classes Announcement

Hopetoun combines the FEI and National classes for the purpose of National Championship qualification and the HarnessStuff Points League. The intention is to run the FEI and National Advanced Singles classes for horses and ponies and, possibly, also the FEI and National Pairs classes for horses and ponies on Thursday, starting no earlier than 2pm, to ensure all drivers are judged by the same officials under the same conditions. Please let the organisers know if this causes you a problem. The actual dressage schedule will depend on the entries received.
