A spokesperson said: “As a family run venture, alongside our primary business, we have found it extremely difficult to allocate the time required to put on an event of this scale and give it the attention it deserves.

“We would like to thank the Duke of Roxburghe and all of his team for the support they’ve given us and for allowing us to host the event in these beautiful surroundings.

“We wish to thank all the Sponsor’s and volunteers who helped, events simply can’t run without the generous support given.

“It only remains to say we are very sorry we have come to this conclusion and, as eventers ourselves, we can assure you it was not made lightly.”
