Win a family weekend at The Festival of British Eventing @ Horse and Hound

An idyllic Cotswolds location, top class sporting action, family entertainment and quality shopping all come together to create and celebrate The Festival of British Eventing (5-7 August).

The Festival takes place in the beautiful surroundings of Gatcombe Park, home of HRH The Princess Royal which is situated a few miles from the old village of Minchinhampton and close to the Gloucestershire market towns of Tetbury, Cirencester and Stroud.

The Festival of British Eventing, presented by the British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA), hosts three major championships, the British Eventing Open Championship, the Smith & Williamson British Intermediate Championship and the Dodson & Horrell British Novice Championship.

The Festival this year also plays host to one of the qualifying rounds for the Dubarry Burghley Young Event Horse Series. In addition it will host one of the qualifiers for the Express Eventing Series 2011, which culminates in the final at the Horse of the Year Show in October.

The competitions during the weekend attract the country’s top national and international riders and visitors to Gatcombe Park will find there is something special for the whole family to enjoy. Why not bring a picnic and take a stroll down to the water fence in the Park Bowl and watch top riders and their horses being put through their paces?

You can take a browse around the many fantastic trade stands selling a wide array of high quality goods ranging from home wares and furniture to designer clothing and rural crafts, fine wines and food. Or you can seat the family at the main arena to watch the many different displays.

Parking is within easy walking distance of the showground and is free of charge; discounted tickets are available for those who book tickets in advance. Special rates apply for coach and driver admission. Children aged 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult and will enjoy free entry. Please visit our website for tickets and admission prices.
