Barefoot Retreats Burnham Market International (9 – 11 April 2020) this year hosts the opening leg of the Event Rider Master series as well as its usual line-up of classes from BE100 to CCI4*-S

Oliver Townend will once again be the ‘rider to beat’ at Burnham Market 2020. Not only did he lead both 4* sections from pillar to post last year but his tally of four star wins at the venue stands at 12 since 2007 so there is little doubt that he will start as favourite for this ERM leg

Running over the first half of the 2020 Easter weekend (Thursday 9th – Saturday 11th April), Barefoot Retreats Burnham Market International attracts the world's best event riders to North Norfolk. Good ground and well built, challenging cross country courses make it a perfect prep run for competitors heading to the spring CCI5* events at Badminton and Kentucky, as well as for those with less lofty targets.

The horse trials has been running at Sussex Farm, just outside the popular holiday destination of Burnham Market and within easy reach of the stunning coast line, since 1999. It was awarded international status in 2003 and now hosts a range of classes from national BE100 through to international CCI4*-S. Organised by Alec Lochore's Musketeer Event Management team, Alec is both Event Director and cross country course designer. 



MEM's official charity for 2020 is East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) which operates two state of the art helicopters and two rapid response vehicles which serve the people of Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire, encompassing residents of Essex and Hertfordshire during the hours of darkness. Its services are only kept airborne thanks to donations

Barefoot Retreats Burnham Market International Horse Trials offers a fantastic day out for all the family. Alongside the top-class competition, there will be over 50 shops and, for children, bungee trampolines, bouncy castles and a climbing wall. Razz and Pearl will be performing circus workshops on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th April, making it a great family day out
