To everyone who competes and supports Onley Grounds
Sadly, but I think wisely the Government have moved most of the country into tier 4 from tonight including Northamptonshire. This regrettably means that we can no longer run senior shows for at least the next two weeks. This is every show up to and including
the 13th of January. We will also be cancelling our affiliated junior show on the 9th of January, as although juniors can still compete they cannot travel out of their area. There would not be enough junior affiliated members in Northamptonshire
to make it viable to run a show. We will update everyone on the weeks following the 13th January as things unfold.
We have asked BS if we can reschedule the Winter Classic and they are looking at that for us. Please Contact
Jayna@onleygroundsec.com for refunds and we will process them back to the card they were sent from. If anyone is in a position to roll entries/stabling over to future events that is always massively appreciated.
The good news is that arena hire for individuals or households can continue and people can continue to have private lessons. Hopefully this will allow everyone to keep their hand in and keep training their horses so that when the shows resume its not carnage
on the show jumping circuit!
We will be releasing hire slots available ASAP with COVID protocols. Onley will have a full course in the Indoor Arena and the small arena will alternate between Flatwork and Gridwork slots.
Thankyou everyone for your support throughout what has been a turbulent year. With the new vaccine progress announced today we can hopefully see a light at the end of the tunnel not too far into 2021.
Onley Grounds Equestrian Complex is situated in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside. Onley Grounds is not just your regular competition centre, it is also home to Rugby Polo Club and Rugby Polocrosse Club. On top of this the site has its own separate satellite
livery yard at Onley Fields Farm as well as being the host of Onley Grounds Farm Shop, Onley Horse Box Servicing and Repairs, Onley Grounds Equine Vets, The Tack Den, The Rug Den (Onsite Rug Washing) and Willoughby Park Polo Gear.
It doesn't stop there however, Onley Grounds also has several eating establishments on site. The Chukka Bar is open seven days a week offering a mouth-watering bar menu. This can be enjoyed whilst watching exciting equestrian events through the floor to
ceiling glass viewing over the Outdoor and one of our Indoor arenas. The Nose Bag Café is great if you want something more casual; the "Full English Breakfast" is highly recommended. Offering superb views over the main indoor arena is The Forge Restaurant,
perfect for Sunday Roast or a function room with a view. From freshly ground coffee and home-made cake, to exquisite restaurant meals, Onley Grounds has something to tickle everyone’s taste buds!
We are striving to become the country’s leading equestrian venue. When you compete at Onley our facilities offer the chance for you to spend your day in comfort, snuggled next to the log burner it is easy to forget what the British winter feels like. Onley
also boasts some of the best grass show rings set amongst the polo grounds. Carriage driving, vaulting, horseball, dog agility and mounted games are just a handful of the vast array of spectacles that choose Onley to host their shows. With competitive rates
for venue hire and such fantastic hospitality facilities there is always something going on to come and get involved with. From conferences, team-building, and yoga, to polo tournaments, history fayres, dressage, and show jumping, Onley Grounds is heading
a new era of entertainment.
With such great catering and viewing facilities, we hope competitors feel they can bring owners, family members and friends to this family-orientated establishment. On top of this we aim to promote all equestrian sports to the general public by making this
one of the few centres they can come to watch in comfort. We are constantly developing and updating the complex, from the menus to the latest waxed surfaces in the arenas – come down to meet our friendly staff and explore.
