Gatcombe event cancelled
Another big Gloucestershire event has fallen foul of the weather.
Organisors of the Festival of British Eventing have been forced to cancel this year's event.
The event had due to be held at Gatcombe Park between July 13th-15th.
Co-Organiser Captain Mark Phillips said ''The unprecedented rainfall over the last month has produced exceptionally wet ground conditions. Due to the continuing unsettled weather we are unable to safely continue the preparations for the Festival.
"We know that riders and spectators will be disappointed - especially as so many events have been cancelled already this year. We did everything possible to ensure that the event took place but sadly the hard-working ground crew at Gatcombe Park have been defeated by the weather.''
British Eventing's Chief Executive Mike Etherington Smith said: ''The Organising Team has explored all options to see if there is a way to make the Festival happen but it has simply not been possible.
"We will do all we can with regard to re-scheduling the British Championships later in the year and will keep members updated as and when we have plans in place.''
