Petplan has announced that it is celebrating its the 25th birthday and the extension of its contract with the Blenheim Petplan International Horse Trials by increasing the prize-money for the next three years.

The event, which takes place from 6 – 9 September 2001, is expecting record entries due to the late start to the season.

This year, first prize at the Blenheim Petplan International Horse Trials will rise from £6,000 to £8,000. A further increase in 2002 will see the top prize rise to £9,000 and a subsequent rise to £10,000 in 2003.

The box office is now open. Contact Blenheim (tel: 01993 813 255) to book by credit card or download the booking form from www.petplanequine.co.uk/blenheim
