From Thursday 15 to Sunday 18 September 2022, eventing fans will be treated to four days of entertainment for all ages at Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials – and tickets are on sale now.
Dressage, cross country and show jumping take centre stage at the world-class equestrian event – and there’s a whole host of family entertainment taking place, too.
Feathered friends from Hawkeye Falconry gives youngsters the chance to get up close to a majestic array of Birds of Prey with two interactive flying displays each day and Misselchalke Gundogs will showcase skills and training exercises with displays for dog lovers.
There’s lots for adrenaline junkies, with an extreme bike battle including BMX Olympic bronze medallist, Declan Brooks, showing off daring tricks.
Little ones will also love The Big Top Marquee, with a variety of stars throughout the weekend including children’s entertainer Showtime Shane. There’s also a dedicated area for creative arts and crafts, a face painting zone and Sam’s Funky Fun Inflatables embracing the eventing theme with bouncy castles including a horseshoe, winning post, bungee run and a toddlers’ play park, too.
And the shopping village will offer the perfect chance to browse for a bargain for you, your house, your horse or your dog. Ranging from everyday horse and hound essentials to country tailors, an extensive array of shops will be on hand offering high-quality goods, rural crafts, homeware, clothing and plenty of gift ideas throughout the event.
New for 2022, there’ll be more catering than ever and better views of Blenheim Arena. There’ll also be additional entrances to the Palace grounds, as well as more marshals and an extra car park to help manage the traffic.
Hospitality packages in the Palace Pavilion are also available, with delicious food and a fully stocked bar available throughout the day, as well as experts to guide guests through each event.
Tickets for Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials cost from £20 for general admission, with hospitality packages in the Palace Pavilion costing from £216.
