General Info

AESDS is set over a 4-day weekend at Angelus Estate, towards the end of July. The estate is located near Mavis Enderby in Lincolnshire, UK, and set on 212 acres of land. The weather is warm enough over the weekend for your horses to be turned out in the paddocks, which have been cordoned off into smaller paddocks using electric tape. Your horses can either sleep in their assigned paddocks or in your trailers. For special cases, a stable can be assigned to you.

Two vets are on site at all times. Lee Matthews and Michael Moore are on call for all your veterinary needs.

Competitors can arrive and leave as they wish but are more than welcome to stay the full 4 days and enjoy the Estate and all it has to offer, not to mention the exciting classes. International and long-distance competitors can arrive up to 2 weeks before the competition and will be provided with suitable accommodation and veterinary care for their horses.

The weather is varying between a warm 27C and 31C – so it is advised that riders exercise caution and keep themselves and their horses hydrated and cool. The wash stalls will be open at all times for cooling baths after training, exercise, and competing. There is a lake to the North West of the Estate that you can paddle in with your horses, and a river running just past the North border of the Estate where you can let your horse swim. See below for a full weather forecast.

Mavis Enderby is sandwiched between the Lincolnshire Wolds and the flats. If you face North and West, you will see large and steep hills. If you face South and East you will see flat land. Angelus Estate offers extensive hacking tracks through woodland and farmland for your enjoyment. A twenty-minute ride will take you into the Wolds where you can enjoy steep hills and stunning scenery. Local amenities are available just a short drive or ride from the Estate.

Scenery may look like this (but sunny):

The Arenas

The dressage rings have a white dressage fence with plant pots at each marker, and a single white bar, a bit like this but with red plants instead. The bleachers are about 8 rows deep and only along the two long sides. A judging table with a white awning is set up at one end.

The two rings are on either side of the large avenue that runs through the middle of the Estate’s main stable area. Other schools and roundpens are available for practice and exercise.

Ring 1 is on the left, Ring 2 is on the right:

27-31 seems so nice and cool to me but it may just be because I live in a hot country lmao

anyways, two questions for the moonlight special:
     is like a small bonfire in the middle of the area allowed? it won't be out of control or harmful to anyone don't worry
     also is cross-dressing alright? bc can you imagine a lovely princess vincenc atop of a stunning princess voda (3 am ideas are always the best imo)
Reply
:iconmapal:
mapal Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Haha for European horses 27-31 is very hot. For international horses it isn't so bad. As for the riders, everyone gets a sweat on sometimes xD It was a reasonable question to ask and I think it's only fair to let people take their jackets off so they don't get heat stroke.

Yes a bonfire is okay as long as it's removable without causing damage :)

And of course cross-dressing is okay xD anything goes :P

:iconmoosethief:
moosethief Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
I aspire to live in Europe, the land of the cool cx
I agree with you letting people take their jackets off since it does get pretty warm with both the sun and exercise that was just merely my opinion on the weather

and thank you thank you, I can't wait to create a good 'ol fire Dos and Viik and draw sparkles and glorious princessy things for Vin and Voda

Ah your profile says you're from Taiwan? xD that makes sense. Yes Europe is a temperate climate, it's not bad, but on days like that with pretty high humidity no one wants to be sweating on a horse really xD

Hehe I can't wait to see what you do :P
