Blenheim Horse Trials @BlenheimHorse

Blenheim Horse Trials attracts the World’s best riders and thousands of visitors who come each year to watch this three day event – which is actually four days now. Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials run from 13 – 16 September this year – now the 28th year of this fantastic competition.

The first three days of the Event begins with Dressage and continues with Cross Country and Show Jumping running on the following two days. There will also be the finale of the Event Rider Masters series. In addition to world class eventing there is a great variety of other attractions.

The trade stands here are always fantastic, including the best in equestrian and country clothing. The food hall will be full of local products to take home and a craft pavilion will display and sell beautiful craft products. The Food and Drink on offer to visitors is always excellent at this event.

Three days of the event will also see various individual Pony Club and Riding Club Eventer challenges. Additional demonstrations include tent pegging, side-saddle displays and quadrille dressage to music.

Children under twelve can get in free with a complimentary admission ticket. This is very generous; many attractions now seem to charge for children over three.

Blenheim is less than 17 miles from us, so just an easy half hour drive.
