This wonderful event with its excellent facilities took place over a weekend with varying weather. The first day was non stop rain all day and on the second day, the sun shone but it was back to rain on the last day. The XC going held up very well. Both the dressage and SJ were held on all weather surfaces which saved the day. Nigel Taylor has extended the area of all weather surfaces, making this event unique in the amount of arenas on this surface.

The Young Riders and Juniors had their Final Trials on the Saturday which was the day the rain stayed away mercifully.

Sophie Beaty from Northamptonshire and Ella Hitchman from Gloucestershire were all subsequently chosen for the short list for the 2015 FEI European Young Rider Championships to be held in Strzegom, Poland, 27-30 August 2015.

Charlotte Bacon from Oxfordshire and Alexander Tordoff from Leicestershire were subsequently chosen for the short listed squad for the 2015 FEI European Junior Rider Championships to be held in Bialy Bor, Poland, 13-16 August 2015.
