British Eventing to Pilot BE90 Three Day Event

As part of British Eventing’s commitment to continue the development of their grassroots offering, we are pleased to confirm that we will pilot a BE90 Three Day Event in 2021 and 2022.


The pilot BE90 Three Day Event follows member feedback and will be run with both BE90 and BE90 Open sections, it will include a dressage test in a 60m x 20m arena and steeplechase phase. The process to secure a venue to host the two-year pilot started at the beginning of the year with expressions of interest welcomed from existing BE venues, these venues were then invited to formally apply to host the exciting new competition.

From these applications, we are pleased to publish the venues who will move forward to the next stage of the application process.

The following venues will be inspected* by the Venue Assessment Panel:

  • Bicton
  • Great Witchingham
  • Keysoe

*Following the current guidance to avoid unnecessary travel, all inspections will take place in due course.

The Venue Assessment Panel will submit venue reports to the Regional Coordinators and Sport Team.

The final stage of the application process will see the venues presenting to a panel of the sport’s key stakeholders, including: An Independent Chair, the BEOA, the EHOA, a member of ERA or rider representative and a member of the Performance team.

The successful venue and further details of the pilot competition will then be shared with the membership.
