Alice offers a range of different competitions, the most popular being Novice One Day Events. These enable younger less confident riders to have a go at all three phases, being judged like you would in British Eventing. The lovely thing about Alice’s shows is, if you fall off or are feeling unsure stewards are all able to lend a helping hand, and offer encouraging words to help you get round, and go home with a smile.
