Fans of dual Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Kauto Star will be able to see their hero at two events this summer.

Kauto is now fully in the swing of his new life as a dressage horse with eventer Laura Collett. And the pair will be showing off their moves at Barbury International Horse Trials and the Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe.

Laura and Kauto will be heading to Barbury Castle in Wiltshire this weekend, doing a demo in the arena with Team GBR eventing chef d’equipe Yogi Breisner on Sunday (7 July).

And the pair will be taking part in the Retraining of Racehorses demo in the main arena at Gatcombe on Sunday 4 August at 2.30pm.

He will love all the attention and it’s a fantastic opportunity for people to see him again,” said Laura. “Although I’m not quite sure how he will behave as he might get quite buzzed up by the atmosphere!”

A spokesman for Gatcombe added: “We are so thrilled that Clive Smith has agreed to allow Kauto to come to the Festival. He is such a legend and we know our crowd will love having the opportunity to see him and Laura.”
