The eventing season is now in full speed with top event riders barely having time to let their feet touch the ground. Bramham International Horse Trials is the next stop for these riders and our favourite eventer Mary King will be competing there with MHS King Joules, or Jay as he is know at the yard.
Here’s a round up of things you might like to know about this year’s event….
Bramham International Horse Trials runs from the 5th – 8th June and is set in the beautiful grounds of Bramham Park in Yorkshire.
Which day to attend…
Friday is again dressage for the 3DE and in the TopSpec Arena you can watch the Burghley Young Event Horse and the Stallion Parade. This year they are holding a late night shopping event on Friday, where entry is free after 4pm and all of the stands stay open until 8pm Great for the shoppers!
Saturday is the biggest day, with Cross Country going on around the Park, last year around 28,000 spectators flocked to Bramham for the day! If you don’t fancy walking the course there are plenty of other things going on as well, including: British Show Jumping and Pony Club as well as Show Jumping for the British Equestrian Trade Association CIC3* class.
Sunday is the final section for the CCI3* classes with the jumping taking place in the Equi-Trek Arena and more British Show Jumping in the TopSpec Arena.
There are over 50 trade stands at Bramham and of course the Joules shows team will be there with the Bramham Collection, you can find them on stand 85.
Every year Bramham runs a Photo Competition with the winning entry appearing on the front cover of the next year’s programme so be sure to get involved if you’re a budding photographer. There is a great Activity Area for the children, with all sorts of things to entertain young and old. Finally it’s a great place to take the family dog for the day, with dog shows, agility and even a crèche in case your pooch doesn’t want to traipse the stands with its shopaholic Mum.
