The Cotswolds hosts some of the most famous Horse Eventing and Trials including Show Jumping,Cross Country and Dressage competitions in the UK and the World including
The Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park, Badminton Horse Trials, Blenheim International Horse Trials and Hartpury Horse Trials.

Eventing originally evolved from the training and selection of cavalry horses.

Each of the three disciplines is designed to test the horses ability - dressage shows how trainable the horse is and its basic paces in walk, trot and canter. The cross country tests stamina, speed, jumping and bravery while the show jumping shows athleticism, control and accuracy. The sport is rather like the pentathlon in that it combines different disciplines in one competition and is run on a cumulative penalty basis. The competitor with least penalties at the end is the winner.

The Festival of British Eventing takes place at:
Gatcombe Park, Hampton Fields, Minchinhampton,
Stroud, Gloucestershire GL6 9AT

This renowned event takes place at Gatcombe Park, spectacular home of the Princess Royal and her family and incorporates the British Open, Intermediate and Novice Championships.

Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park

The Festival of British Eventing – the perfect country weekend.

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
(August 5th to 7th 2011 ). 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.

Hosting the Novice, Intermediate and Open championship, The Festival, attracts the country’s top national and international event riders. British team members, William Fox‐Pitt – who has won more championship titles here than anyone else – Mary King, Pippa Funnell, reigning World Champion Zara Phillips and last year’s Olympic bronze medallist Tina Cook are all regular competitors at the festival, one of the annual highlights of the eventing calendar.

The spectator‐friendly course follows a two‐mile undulating track round the park allowing for a unique close‐up of the sporting action while the bowl at the heart of the park provides the perfect meeting place and ideal picnic spot with a front‐row view of cross‐country fences including the feature water jump.

A short walk from the cross country course the main arena hosts a full timetable of family entertainment over the weekend in addition to the competition show jumping in the morning . This year Jemima Parry‐Jones, of the International Centre for Birds of Prey in Newent, returns to amaze the crowds with her spectacular falconry displays while Charlotte Dennis will inspire with her unique demonstrations of natural horsemanship. Long‐standing Gatcombe favourites – the racing ponies – return to contest the Shetland Pony Grand National qualifiers. Members and volunteers of Riding for the Disabled Association will also be giving a display. A very special time for an organisation celebrating its 40th anniversary this year of which the HRH Princess Royal is President.

High quality trade stands selling rural, local and sometimes unusual products has always been a feature at Gatcombe. For 2009 over 100 selected trade stands will make up three‐avenues of the best shopping available offering everything from the latest model from Land Rover to a pack of pork sausages produced from Gatcombe’ free‐range Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs.
