Eventing grand prix to be held at Windsor Europeans

  • Windsor will host its first ever eventing grand prix this summer as part of the Alltech FEI European Jumping and Dressage Championships (25-30 August).

    Competitors will take part in a show jumping round followed by an arena-based cross-country course, to fight it out for a £10,000 prize pot.

    The clevent has attracted a star-studded line up — including eventing world champion Zara Phillips, Olympic bronze medallist Tina Cook and multi-gold medallist Mary King.

    Junior young rider gold medallist Emily Llewellyn, junior european champion Laura Collet and Gary Parsonage, fresh from his record third win in the Quantum Saddle Eventing Grand Prix at Hickstead will also take part.

    Clayton and Lucinda Fredericks, Lucy Wiegersma and Elizabeth Power add to the impressive line-up.

    The eventing grand prix features as part of the gala night on Friday (28 August), which boasts a programme set to make a big impact, including the Duke of Richmond’s Ride quadrille, the Shetland Pony Grand National, puissance and displays in carriage driving, vaulting, para-equestrianism, reining and endurance.
