Welcome to the Speedgate Events page. Once again we have a full diary of events for the year ahead with something on offer for everyone. All our events run from our Speedgate Fawkham site where we have 3 fantastic arenas, plenty of on-site parking and a Coffee Shop in addition to our Saddlery & Feed Barn stores. Details of each event or series can be found by following the links below.
Our annual Unaffiliated Dressage series looks forward to seeing regular and new faces competing for those all important points towards the Championship show at the end of the season. A waiting list will apply so it is advised to book early to avoid disappointment. Entries for all of our Unaffiliated Dressage series can be made online via Horse Monkey.
Following the success of our Fun Dressage shows this year, we are pleased to add 2 new Dressage events to the Calendar for 2020.
Unaffiliated Team Dressage
Teams can be made up of three or four riders. The winning team is the one that has the highest combined percentage of their three best rider scores. There will also be placings for individuals in each class, if there are sufficient entries. Entries can be made online via Horse Monkey.
The popular Affiliated Dressage Series is back for 2020, and we are delighted to have been chosen to host the Summer Area Festival. We look forward to welcoming competitors to Speedgate this season - schedules will be available via British Dressage in due course. Entries must be made via Horse Monkey. If you have any queries please email email@example.com or contact Karen on 01474 888474.
The dates for 2020 are confirmed as follows:
Unaffiliated Show Jumping
Our Unaffiliated Show Jumping shows are aimed at competitors of all ages. All classes and warm up are held on one of our surfaces. There are points to gain from each of the classes, all going towards our Championship show at the end of the season. Entries can be made online via Horse Monkey.
Unaffiliated Combined Training
Combined training consists of a dressage test followed by one round of Show Jumping. Your dressage score will be converted into penalties. Any faults incurred in the Show Jumping round will be added to your penalty score. The competitor with the lowest penalty score is the winner.
Competitors who do not wish to Show Jump may enter the dressage phase only. Entries can be made online via Horse Monkey.
In-Hand and Open Shows
A variety of In-hand and ridden classes are held on our surfaces throughout the season. Entries can be made online via Horse Monkey.
