[p]Virtual Eventing was the brainchild of Rachel Wakefield of Uptown Eventing. After watching a video on Facebook of a nurse from the North of England who was helping to fight the Coronavirus, Rachel decided to use the power of the Eventing community to create an International Virtual 5* Event to raise as much money as possible to help those on the front line around the world. We have an all-star global line up with over 50 world-class riders from a dozen countries including; William Fox-Pitt GB, Boyd Martin USA, Gemma Tattersall GB, Laura Collett GB, Megan Jones AUS, Joe Meyer NZL, Joseph Murphy IRL and Carlos Paro BRA.[/p][p]The format itself will include a trot up as you’ve never seen before, a single mounted phase, riders will participate in the 5* B dressage test, which has already been recorded by our riders to ensure we abide by current Covid-19 lockdown procedures in place from the Government and the BEF guidelines. This footage will not be shown until the livestream when our star-studded judges’ line-up will be judging the competition live. We will be including a series of unmounted cross-country and jumping challenges during the weekend plus much, much more which will remain a surprise for our viewers.[/p][p]The virtual trade stand village is set to offer a range of customer discounts and great deals as well as many of our vendors supporting the NHS by donating a percentage of sales funds. Here you’ll be able to find a range of products from animal healthcare to luxury clothing and accessories, there will be something for everyone. Our dedicated team will be bringing you five days of action-packed livestream entertainment to your household from 6th – 10th May 2020. There will also be a livestream rider draw on Wednesday 29th April at 6pm.[/p][p]With nearly 1.5 million global cases of Covid 19 hospitals and health care workers are being stretched to their limits, so now more than ever we need to pull together to support all involved in this worldwide crisis. Please dig deep for this amazing cause![/p]
