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 Autumn Eventing
(September 13th to 15th 2019 ). 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.

This year sees the event being run for the 25th time. The Cross Country course utilises a different area of the Gatcombe Park Estate to that used by the Magic Millions Festival of British Eventing, which takes place in early August.

The event starts at 08.30 hrs on Saturday & Sunday. Dressage, show jumping and cross-country phases run throughout. The event attracts many interesting shops, which will include the Gatcombe Collection. There are various catering facilities available to spectators. At various times during both Saturday and Sunday HRH The Princess Royal will present prizes.

Gatcombe Park is situated at Hampton Fields, mid-way between Minchinhampton and Avening; the event will be signposted from both directions. Spectator admission is £6 for a car and occupants and £4 for a programme. Full information about directions accommodation, timetable and all entries are contained on this web site.
