Belton Horse Trials

Sarah Bullen's tiny, but dynamic Rock Model, ridden by Italy's Vittoria Panizzon, was a big winner over the years. Now he's being celebrated by a new trophy to be awarded at the Eventing Spring Carnival at Thoresby International

As a tribute to the last ever Belton International and to keep our subscribers entertained during this time, we’ve put together our first ever An Eventful Life TV programme devoted to Belton 2019
