Tickets on sale for Cornbury House Horse Trials

In just four years, Cornbury House Horse Trials in Oxfordshire has gained a reputation as one of eventing’s most special showcases. The very top British-based riders and the most exciting young horses provide superb sport in a truly beautiful country-house setting, and owners, spectators and guests can relax and watch them in unparalleled style with premium hospitality.

This year’s Cornbury House Horse Trials takes place from 11-15 September – and tickets are now on sale, starting at just £5.

Cornbury House hosts the British Eventing Young Horse Championships, featuring Olympic stars of the future, as well as FEI international classes at CCI3*-S and CCI2*-S level for senior and also under-21 riders. There are also national intermediate and open intermediate classes and a Pony eventing class.

Olympic gold medallist Laura Collett, who won the £2,500 Leading Rider prize at Cornbury House in 2023, said: “Cornbury has raised the bar each year as far as what is on offer for spectators, riders and owners! It’s a fantastic event that provides spectacular hospitality for owners and spectators alongside hosting a brilliant competition.”

New for 2024 will be a celebration of local food with a ‘From the Farm’ theme, as the estate brings together the best of Cornbury farms, the Bruern Estate and Jeremy Clarkson’s Diddly Squat, taking the best produce from each to offer to our visitors which will be sold in the newly created Farm Food zone.

David Howden, Cornbury House Horse Trials Founder and President, said: “There is so much planned for Cornbury House Horse Trials this year, which my wife Fiona and I are very excited  to announce. I have made no secret of the fact that I am passionate about supporting the best British-based talent, and that we are utterly committed to helping the stars of our sport – present and future – to reach their goals. We are thrilled to be holding the prestigious British Eventing Young Horse Championships for the second year running.

“This year we are looking forward to increasing the number of visitors to Cornbury and showing them what Cornbury – and eventing – has to offer.

“I am also excited to announce that this year we will be working exclusively with The Bull, Charlbury who will be delivering the food offering in our VIP hospitality marquee. Last year the team from The Bull produced pure food theatre and I look forward to tasting the fantastic food offering including our own Cornbury Longhorn Beef on an asador.

“I can promise our visitors that this year not only will they be immersed in the very best of British eventing – I’m sure all of our British Olympic riders will come to Cornbury – but also a fabulous day out in a beautiful setting.”

Cornbury House are proud to be partnering with Pol Roger, Pragnell Jewellery, Volare Aviation and Fortnum & Mason to execute this wonderful event.
