World-class competititon

Join us and enjoy world-class competition, from elegant dressage and exciting show jumping to gripping cross country and for the second year hosts the first leg of the Event Rider Masters Series.

You can also see the stars of the future in the Dubarry Burghley Young Event Horse 4- and 5-year-old classes.

Back by popular demand is the eventing challenge, held in a grass arena, which sees competitors jump a course of show jumps, immediately followed by a round of arena cross-country fences with an optimum completion time. Penalties are incurred for knock-downs, refusals and time faults.


Become a member and enjoy access to the VIP ringside members' enclosure. Here you can enjoy relaxed surroundings, a garden area and private toilets. A licensed bar, restaurant and light refreshments will be available. Tables may also be reserved for lunch.

Membership includes admission, car parking and a free programme with a two-for-one offer to visit the house, garden, farmyard and adventure playground.

Memberships are available for one day, three days or as a caravan membership and can be purchased online until 9 May and are subject to availability on the day.
