Whether you’re a die-hard showjumping fanatic, a regular on the show circuit or a total newcomer to horses, the Equestrian.com Hickstead Derby Meeting (26-29 June 2014) had something to appeal to everyone.
“This year was the 54th anniversary of the first Hickstead Derby, and more than five decades later it remains as popular as ever,” says Hickstead Director Lizzie Bunn. “We hope Hickstead’s supporters will really get behind this year’s Equestrian.com Derby and be part of its legacy.”
The action in the International Arena began on Thursday 26 June, with The Stoner Jewellers Vase, a thrilling speed class, while in the Bunn Leisure Derby Tankard the fences go up to 1.50m. Friday morning’s feature class was the Bunn Leisure Derby Trial. With the top 35 qualifying for the Equestrian.com Derby. Despite a torrential downpour on Saturday the weather was kind. All Classes were well supported and the show had an excellent turnout. Plenty of trade stands made the event an exciting shopping experience.
