    How to get there

    Bishop Burton is on the A1079 between Market Weighton and Hull, two miles west of Beverley and eight miles from the M62.

    What the organisers say

    Our main sponsor is Coopers Marquees.

    The showjumping is on a surface and the dressage is on grass.

    The cross-country courses run on parkland and through woodland, making the most of the natural undulating terrain. The tracks are bold and inviting. The ground will be aera-vated if necessary. Minor changes will be made to the
    tracks from May 2015. The courses suit everyone as alternatives are provided at the more demanding fences.

    There will be an additional £60 and prize in kind to the winner of each section in celebration of 2015 being Bishop Burton College’s Diamond Jubilee and 27th year of BE horse trials.
