The Festival of British Eventing presented by The British Trade Association will take place at Gatcombe Park, the home of HRH Princess Royal and her family from 2–4 August.
This weekend incorporates the British Open, Intermediate and Novice Championships for a weekend of spectacular eventing. Many of the world’s top riders have crowned this event, one of the most prestigious titles to win anywhere in the world.
Spectacular cross-country viewing in the natural amphitheatre of the park bowl, attractions in the main arena , from the excitement of the Shetland pony Grand National, the grandeur of the dressage to music display, and the exhilaration of the scurry driving.
The Dubarry Burghley Young Event Horse Qualifier and the BETA Pony Club inter-branch showjumping run on Friday, all set the stage for a three day-long extravaganza.
Great shopping, food court, bars, pimms and champagne, children’s play area and “have a go dog agility”. There really is something for the whole family.
Tickets bought in advance are available at a discounted rate and can be purchased by visiting www.gatcombe-horse.co.uk.
Tickets are also available for the Hamptons International Garden Cub, a members only arena-side enclosure.
