Exciting times as entries open this week – Friday 15th July – for Somerford Park International Horse Trials
Somerford Park Farm is well supported by competitors all year round and an impressive line up is anticipated at this years event which runs 19th – 21st August, allowing time for many of the riders to fly home from Rio and compete with their stars of the future in the beautiful Cheshire countryside.
No stone is left unturned and attention to detail is paramount lending a championship feel to the Horse Trials which is reflected in the competitor list each year. Last year’s winners included; Clark Montgomery, James Avery, Harry Meade, Mark Todd, Nicola Wilson and Aoife Clark.
Rio bound Kitty King said, ‘I always look forward to competing at Somerford Park International Horse Trials the attention to detail is superb and they provide educational courses.’
‘The care and maintenance that goes into their ground is excellent and ensures the going is consistent which gives me every confidence. The whole horse trials has a three day event feel.’
An exciting timetable gets under way on Friday running through to Sunday including; International 1* and 2*, Intermediate and Novice and BE100. A new feature on Sunday will see a change to the 2* with the cross country taking place first followed by the showjumping to incorporate a mounted presentation.
