THIS year’s Osberton International Horse Trials may be taking place at Thoresby Park this year but it’s all systems go for a packed timetable of top class competition.
Run by the team at BEDE Events, Osberton International Horse Trials – October 8 to 11 - is highly regarded in the calendar and is home to the British Eventing Young Horse Championships.
This year’s autumn three-day event will see three championship sections for five-year-old horses competing at national level, and six and seven-year-old horses taking on the international stage in order to be crowned the National Champions.
Qualifying and competing at the British Eventing Young Horse Championships is the ultimate accolade for many young event horse owners, breeders and riders. Past stars include famous names NZB Land Vision, World Equestrian Games silver medallist Cool Mountain, Redesigned and Billy Landretti to name a few.
BEDE’s Stuart Buntine said: “The Young Horse Championships have grown significantly over the years, with Olympic horses and riders coming through the ranks at Osberton.”
The timetable for the five, six and seven-year-old championships will see dressage on the Friday, showjumping on the Saturday and cross-country on the Sunday.
Running alongside the championships will be prestigious CCI2* long format and CCI3* long format sections.
Dressage for both the 2 and 3* classes will run on the Thursday and Friday with cross-country on the Saturday and showjumping on the Sunday.
Added Stuart: “The team at BEDE is working hard to put on a fantastic event for competitors and their supporters and to make this year’s ‘new look’ Osberton a fitting way to end the season on a high.
“We have a number of sponsorship opportunities available and would welcome support at various levels to make this October finale and party a real celebration of the sport.”
