Autumn Horse Trials
- Published: 23 April 2022
It is with great sadness that we have to announce that the Weston Park Autumn Horse Trials on the 8th October will not take place this year.
The pandemic still represents challenges in the outdoor event industry and Weston Park have had to move the Historic Rally Festival into the autumn schedule which will run the weekend after the Horse Trials.
We have worked extremely hard to re-site the Event and use other areas of the Park but sadly, as we are not able to include a water complex, the course will not to be of British Eventing standard.
Joint organisers Janet and Vicky Plant comment “I would like to thank all of our sponsors, volunteers, officials and competitors for your loyal support since 1984,the Team is heartbroken.”
Jennifer Astbury, Head of Estate Operations comments “Weston operates as a national events venue and in recent years we have continued to add to our portfolio to sustain the charity. Covid has presented many challenges not least the fluidity of the calendar and disruption to planning. The Autumn Horse Trials was a much loved fixture in the diary and we are of course disappointed that we have been unable to accommodate the event this year.”
