Something for everyone at Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials

While we’re all counting the days to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, there is plenty to look forward to after the Games are over.

It is now less than 100 days until Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials, one of the most iconic fixtures on the British Eventing calendar, to take place in the beautiful grounds of Blenheim Palace from 19th – 22nd September 2024.

No tickets for Paris? Come to Blenheim instead!

Tickets are already selling like hot cakes for this popular event where you’ll get to see some of the best riders, horses and equestrian enthusiasts from around the world.

You may not be able to get tickets for Paris but there is no problem in getting them for Blenheim where you are very likely to see several of the recently returned Olympic competitors and maybe even some medal winners in action! For example, last year's winners of the CCI4*-S 8/9 Year Championship, Oliver Townend and Cooley Rosalent are one of the nominated entries for the British team for Paris 2024

As well as the CCI4* eventing action, there are plenty of other equine delights to enjoy.  The Riding Club and Pony Club Eventer Challenge, which is as hotly contested as the main event, the ROR Southern Dressage Championship runs over Thursday and Friday plus a brand-new space for competitions – The Churchill Arena which will host Pony Club Mounted Games and Pony Club Team showjumping.

Add to this the displays in the Blenheim arena and the not to be missed Hound Parade there truly is something for everyone at Blenheim.

A new perspective

New for 2024 is the Big Wheel offering unforgettable thrills and memories for those brave enough to ride. Towering high above the grounds of Blenheim Palace, the Big Wheel offers fantastic, panoramic views of the Horse Trials and the surrounding countryside.

This Esme and Harlow White will also be visiting Blenheim on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 September respectively. Esme and Harlow need no introduction to the younger equine enthusiasts among us as content creators and influencers in the equestrian industry.  Fans will have the opportunity to meet and have a chat, Esme and Harlow will also be interviewed on the Rider Stage with Harlow performing a special riding demonstration on the Sunday.
