This year’s SsangYong Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials CCI3* track has been designed by David Evans.

Featuring two crossings of the lake plus a dew pond, big open ditches as well as challenging light and terrain, the beautifully presented course is set to test combinations’ accuracy and stamina.

H&H takes a look at the course, which riders will tackle tomorrow (Saturday, 16 September).
