New Scottish venue added to British Eventing winter schedule

British Eventing is pleased to welcome a new Scottish equestrian centre to its portfolio of venues – Bogenraith Equestrian. Set in the stunning countryside of Royal Deeside Aberdeenshire, Bogenraith Equestrian is easily accessed from the AWPR (Aberdeen peripheral route) and the A92.


The venue has invested heavily in their facilities over recent years, and now boasts…

  • Indoor – 80 x 40 waxed surface
  • Outdoor – 80 x 40 waxed surface
  • Outdoor – 70 x 55 waxed surface
  • Eventing arena Designed and built by Adrian Ditcham assistant course builder at the 2012 Olympic Games, has designed Boekelo CC14*L since 2019
  • Cross country course 70cm to novice, designed and built by Adrian Ditcham
  • Horse & rider collecting ring
  • Livery arena – indoor for all year-round use
  • 160 stadium seats/ viewing gallery to the Indoor arena


Bogenraith Equestrian will host British Eventing’s Harry Hall One Club ACE Qualifiers this winter, and it is also hoped that they will be added to the British Eventing calendar in the future once their cross-country course has been designed and built.


“Our facilities have been meticulously thought out and designed to the highest standards with our clients’ needs taken into consideration,” said owner and director Marion Dreelan. “Recently, the North of Scotland has seen venues close their doors which restricts many equestrians and means that driving south for hours to indoor training and competitions is the only option. This can be very costly and time consuming.


“We have taken every aspect of competing, training and time into consideration and believe that every rider deserves to have decent facilities, combined with providing comfort for the rider, groom and horse. We are passionate about what we are delivering to Scotland and we hope our clients are too.”


The first of the ACE Qualifiers at Bogenraith Equestrian takes place on 28th January 2024.
