Autumn show & International Horse Trials


Event Date: 24/09/2022 9:00 am - 25/09/2022 5:00 pm


The Autumn Show and the South of England International Horse Trials are coming together in 2022 as one fantastic event. This will truly be a jam packed and perfect autumnal day out for all ages (and their canine companions). The Autumn Show & International Horse Trials will feature a plethora of countryside sports, displays and ‘have-a-go’ activities all designed to celebrate the joys of countryside and equestrian pursuits.

New for this year, the show will incorporate the long-established South of England International CCI*** and CCI** (Concours Complet International) Horse Trials affiliated with the Fédération Équestre Internationale (FEI) and including British Eventing national classes. This event is in its 15th year and attracts some of the top riders in the sport with over ten countries being represented over the weekend.

And as well as experiencing the thrill of watching riders at the top of their profession in the showjumping, dressage and cross-country phases. Visitors can try their hand at fly casting, archery, axe throwing and more, while dog lovers can be wowed by the terrier racing, long dog displays, rare breed gundogs, skilled gundog displays and exciting scurries where their dogs can have a go! Children will love the farm animals, falconry, funfair, pony rides and more. Plus, there will be mouth-watering food and drink stalls and superb shopping opportunities.

Tickets cost £12.60 for adults, £10.80 for senior citizens/students (inclusive of 10% advance discount until 16.9.22) – under 16s go free (suggested donation of £2 for children aged 5-15).

Discounted tickets for British Eventing members will be available online soon.

Thank you so much for all the hard work your team put into our Fiesta last Friday. It went really well, and our clients / staff had a fantastic time.
