The Fidelity Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials are now firmly established in the eventing calendar with the world’s best riders as well as thousands of spectators who come each year to watch the event.

There is a well established CCI*** class and an increasingly popular 8 and 9 year old CIC*** class, which now incorporates the British 8 and 9 year old National Championship. This is an opportunity to see the stars of the future in action, and to try to spot the next Olympic champion!

Dressage. Dressage is the first phase of the competition, in which a series of pre-set movements are judged subjectively. It takes place all day on Thursday and Friday, and the CCI*** class is set against the magnificent backdrop of Blenheim Palace.
