Getting Set for Weston Park
- Published: 11 March 2020
We are delighted to say that following the monsoon rain from various storms Weston Park is looking good the Horse Trials drainage work undertaken last June has proved a great success with the Show Jumping area dry and ready for the season.
We have been in the Park this week putting out cross country fences travelling heavy Advanced fences on the tractors and leaving no marks or mess, we are delighted. Most of the 3 courses are out all of which have a new look with the Obelisk back in use for the Advanced and Intermediate.
Once again for many riders Weston Park in the spring will be their last outing before Badminton so we have high hopes for April 2020. As usual the April dates will include;:-
Saturday 4th April
We are fortunate to have long term title sponsor Rookery Park Stud also covering an Advanced and Open Intermediate sections

The second Open Intermediate is sponsored by Ethos – greener, clearer feed and bedding which is the rebranding of IEC Solutions which you may remember from last year.
Saracen Horse Feeds OIu21 and NAF OIu18 these sponsors of the Junior Trials will have many competitors all hoping for a place on the European Teams.
New sponsors for this year's Intermediate sections W R Davies Toyota and Naylors Equestrian and Country Specialists
Sunday 5th April
Moores Metals, Landsbrook Stud and Rowen Barbary are joined by new sponsor Corroconsult to Sponsor the 4 Novice sponsors
Also on Sunday the European Team Preliminary Pony Trial will again have competitors jostling for a team space.
Both days will be packed with Dressage, Show Jumping and Cross Country each day starting at 8am.
There is a great deal of satisfaction and pride in seeing just how many of our original volunteers we still have plus an increasing number of new volunteers where would our sport be without them.
As the event enters its 42nd year we look forward to welcoming all the competitors, sponsors and volunteers for another thrill packed weekend of eventing by amazing equine and human athletes crossing the wonderful parkland at Weston Park.
