Bramham International — the UK’s third-largest spectator horse trials — is upping the technology stakes with a new website and e-ticket system for this season.

A mini version of the website is already live, and the full interactive site will be launched in the coming weeks. This will be coupled with a ticketing system which will allow visitors to print tickets at home.

The Yorkshire event, which takes place on 5-8 June, features 3 major competitions: the Equi-Trek CCI***, the British Equestrian Trade Association CIC*** and the Bishop Burton College Under 25 CCI***.

There is also showjumping, showing, young horse sections and Pony Club classes — in a backdrop of displays, entertainments and more than 130 tradestands.

The team will be bidding to repeat its 2013 success in landing the Animal Health Trust Eventing Award.

The event charity will be the Mark Davies Injured Riders Fund, which supports people who have suffered a horse-related accident financially, morally and practically. The MDIRF will be running fundraising activities during the event.
