The Eventing Spring Carnival, which will incorporate the Grantham Cup, has a new name and a new venue but BEDE Events, the long-standing organisers of the event that runs at this time each year, hopes that it will become bigger and better than ever

Belton International Horse Trials has traditionally held this spot on the British Eventing calendar and has long been considered an important lead-up to Badminton Horse Trials. After the 2019 event however the National Trust advised that Belton House and its grounds would no longer be available as an eventing venue, forcing a move

Stuart Buntine of BEDE Events has had his eye on Thoresby Park as a possible venue for some time and its similar location and sandy free draining land made it the preferred choice as the Belton replacement

Stuart was in Australia recently and we caught up with him for a chat about how things were progressing at the new venue at Thoresby Park
