We are very much looking forward to our One Day Event on Sunday. If you haven’t been to Munstead since Covid, things are going to look a little different to usual as it is set up slightly differently to allow for the Government/BEF Covid regulations. Therefore please read through the information below which will hopefully help you through the day.
It is a little long, but is very important that you read it all and pass it onto any grooms/owners that are coming with you. We are very lucky that we are able to run, but we do need EVERYONE to comply with the current Government Guidelines. PARTICUARLY NO GROUPS OF MORE THAN 6 PEOPLE ANYWHERE ON SITE PLEASE
BEFORE THE EVENT
Please find your individual times and your number here ODE Times (FINAL) Website
And the template for your number here ODE Number Bib
Please locate your number on the spreadsheet and print it off using the template provided. The most important thing is that you print your numbers bold enough so that the jump judges can read it, while you are travelling at speed.
