Dry weather causes problems for horse sports

Posted on | 0 Responses

Equestrian events are suffering as some of the UK remains in the grip of one of the driest spells for more than a century.

Most areas of the UK are beset with hard ground and it is affecting a lot of horse sport.

Shows have reported low entries and in polo people are unwilling to risk their ponies on hard ground. Point-to-point has been hit too with a lack of runners over the last few months.

Most events have tried really hard but simply don’t have the finances to keep the ground perfect.

Suffolk showground was near perfect but they had spent £42,000 on it and not many can afford to do that.

Although racecourses are regularly watered, some grass gallops have been unusable.
