Welcome to Belsay Horse Trials. This is a stunning venue and our cross country course is set over beautiful, undulating Grade 1 heritage parkland on well-established old pasture turf.
Belsay Horse Trials has grown to become one of the most competitor friendly events in the North and in 2017 added a Landrover Shuttle service for owners and riders from the lorry park to the main arena. Upper limit prize money is awarded for the Open Intermediate and Intermediate classes (excludes OIU21) and a cash bonus prize of £250 awarded to the horse/rider combination clear cross country, nearest the optiumum time, across the Novice and OI/I classes (excludes NU18 and OIU21). Belsay Horse Trials Rugs are also presented to the horse/rider combinations clear cross country, nearest the optimum time, in the BE90, BE100 Novice and Intermediate sections.
You will find a good mixture of natural obstacles, permanent and portable fences designed by Adrian Ditcham and built by Rob McSkimming and his team, now with 2 water complexes. Our thanks to the large number of volunteers that help paint, dress and put the finishing touches to all the fences.
The going is likely to be perfect and the organisers always make this their top priority. This is an ideal viewing course for owners, trainers and family. Our showjumping arena has state of the art sports drainage and our dressage arenas are sited away from the Main Arena and Cross Country course in a quiet area of the park. Our event is also supported by live scoring.
Our thanks to our course builders and all of our contractors and their teams for their hard work in preparing the event.
