Exceptional equine competition this month at the 45th Bramham horse trials

You are cordially invited to join the celebrations at this year’s Equi-Trek Bramham horse trials with four days of top-flight equestrian action, family fun, retail therapy, delicious food and adventure for all.

At the show’s heart are the world class eventing competitions, the ultimate test of horse and rider. The Equi-Trek CCI3*, the British Horse Feeds U25 CCI3* and the British Equestrian Trade Association CIC3* will host around 150 riders all looking to rise to the Bramham challenge, including cross country courses designed by former Olympian, Ian Stark. This year, riders are aiming for the World Championships in the USA and Bramham could be pivotal in their selection.

Yorkshire’s Nicola Wilson is a regular competitor as is Huddersfield-born and bred Oliver Townend, plus ‘Mr Bramham’ William Fox-Pitt who has won at the venue seven times. Add to this British Showjumping classes, hunters, Dubarry Young Event Horse Qualifiers, young stock classes and Pony Club activities, it’s going to be an equine extravaganza!

The trade stand village features over 135 outlets selling almost everything for the equestrian diva, country rose or city dwellers, plus you can support our nominated charity, St Gemma’s Hospice in Leeds. Plus, there’s a Yorkshire food hall and plenty of outlets for food and drinks – or why not pack your own, choose a spot and enjoy a picnic! The Action and Adventure Zone is a welcome distraction for adrenaline seekers and children will love the family zone. Kick-start the weekend early on Friday, June 8th with late night shopping – entry is free after 4pm.

There’s an exclusive new ticket to get 2018 Bramham off to an amazing start on Wednesday, June 6th. Enjoy a guided course walk with David Evans who builds the fences (and has the honour at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics), scrumptious afternoon tea in the Gallery in Bramham house followed by a VIP view of the first horse inspection, all for £100.

Show ticket prices start at £12 and under-12s go free with a paying adult.
