With just 100 days to go until the much-loved Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials descends on the stunning surroundings at Blenheim Palace, tickets are already selling like hot cakes. 

This hugely popular event is set to bring together some of the best riders, horses and equestrian enthusiasts from around the world. The Horse Trials is gearing up to build on the success of a bumper attendance in 2023.  In this Olympic year, there may also be an opportunity to see some medal winners in action – hopefully from Team GB.

In addition to getting up close to the nitty gritty of the competition at the top 4* horse trials in the UK, there is a plethora 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.

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.

We are also so excited to welcome This Esme and Harlow White to 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.
