Join the eventing elite at Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials from 8th to 11th September.
This prestigious competition is held over four days, but is traditionally called a three-day event, as dressage spans two days, followed by cross country and finally, show jumping. The stunning 2000-acre parkland of Blenheim Palace, landscaped by Capability Brown, will once again provide the flawless setting. And many previous Blenheim champions have gone on to achieve Olympic success, so the stakes will be high, adding to the unique atmosphere.
As always, the competition combines exquisite elegance, skill and excitement – the cross country courses are particularly renowned for thrilling spectacle. But Blenheim is a wonderful family occasion too: under 12s have free entry and the fun of their own play area, while the whole family will enjoy the Shopping Village, with over 200 exclusive brands to explore in between events.
Blenheim Palace’s gates open at 7am each day.
