The Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park, presented by British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA), takes place from August 5-7, 2016 and is one of the highlights of the equestrian calendar, providing riders with the opportunity of competing at one of the most prestigious events of the season. With four coveted championship titles up for grabs, many of the world’s best riders will be there to win.

Along with the great family entertainment on offer, this is a Cotswold weekend not to miss. With this is in mind, we are offering Cotswold Life readers the opportunity to win a very special weekend at The Festival including a ‘view behind the scenes’, meeting some of the stars of the sport of horse trials.

Held in the stunning location of Gatcombe Park, The Festival main arena hosts the show jumping phase of the competition as well as a full timetable of family entertainment over the weekend, including the excitement of the Shetland Pony Grand National, the grandeur of the Dressage to Music display, the exhilaration of the Scurry Driving, and this year the Devil’s Horsemen will thrill crowds with their amazing dare devil stunts. The Park Bowl provides the perfect location for spectators to watch the cross-country action and enjoy the beautiful setting of the Park.
