One lucky owner will win an AGA this season as new championship for open horses is launched

AGA Dual Control National Open Horse Championship

I’m excited! The season starts on Sunday and I’ll be heading to East Anglia for the CUUHC meeting at Cottenham. For the past three seasons this historic racecourse has hosted the first AGA ladies open race of the season, however, this time around it marks the start of our new owners championship. Owners of horses that are placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the mens and ladies open races will earn points for the championship, as will owners of horses that are placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the mixed open at Black Forest Lodge.
