This year the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show (12-16 June) will be giving more riders than ever the chance to compete in its famous amphitheatre-style international arenas and you don’t have to be jumping huge fences in order to do so.
As well as the elite CSI4* showjumping classes, this year’s popular show in Cheshire will feature amateur series at 1.25m and 1.15m, plus a full range of national, age and pony affiliated competitions.
Bolesworth’s Nina Barbour said: “Each year we aim to develop new classes and competitions at Bolesworth International and want to attract riders across all levels, from the very best showjumpers in the world to those who compete week in and week out on the national calendar.”
National and international classes are now open to enter, while rider packages are also available to book.
How to enter Bolesworth International
The CSI2* is running with sections at 1.30m, 1.40m and 1.45m. There are a limited number of invitational hybrid entries available, incorporating 4* (B and C Tours), and 2* (A Tour) classes. Entries are available via the Bolesworth Show Office: 01829 307676.
CSI amateur packages are available to any home country rider with a valid FEI horse registration (a full FEI passport is not required for riders competing in their home country), as well as all international riders. Amateur packages are available for one, two or three horses and incorporate VIP hospitality tables, providing an ideal base to relax and watch the competition during the show.
