    How to get there

    Whitfield racecourse is situated just off the A43 between Silverstone and Brackley. It is very important that you follow the event signs.

    What the organisers say

    The Horsezone Whitfield Horse Trials is a brand new event for the 2015 eventing calendar. Situated just off the A43, it has easy access routes from all directions. With BE90 through to novice classes, the event should suit everyone.

    This will be a brand new course designed by Alec Lochore, which makes use of the undulating ground and natural features, including ditches and hedges. It will be friendly and inviting with a newly constructed water fence. The ground will be prepared in the best possible way with the use of machinery, such as an agri-vator, where necessary.

    The event is very grateful for the support provided by Horsezone as title sponsor of the event, and we are looking forward to developing this event over the years.
