Kelsall Hill are keen to encourage participation in competitive sport so we are keen to encourage riders from entry level upwards to compete using our facilities.
We host unaffiliated competitions using BD tests and eventers dressage competitions using BE tests when we think suitable for preparation for the eventing season. Lights inside will be turned on when needed. In summer we use the Lakeside and Lakeview arenas, in winter you’ll be indoors.
Our arena surfaces are wet not waxed to give your horse the best footing we can.
