Fun for all the family at Osborne Horse Trials

news in from Bede Events

This year’s Osborne Horse Trials will be held on Tuesday, July 23 and Wednesday, July 24 and the organisers plan to build on the success of last year.

Organised by BEDE Events, in association with English Heritage, this groundbreaking family equestrian event takes place at Osborne, Queen Victoria’s former palatial holiday home, and is the biggest sporting event on the Isle of Wight.

Queen Victoria herself once said “It is impossible to imagine a prettier spot” and it’s hard to argue with that. This is a spectacular event in a stunning location.

As well as fast-paced equestrian action in a beautiful historical setting, visitors will be able to enjoy an exciting new street food festival, entry to the majestic rooms of Osborne, access to the royal beach, a Victorian funfair, bars, shopping, dog agility shows, arena attractions, a spacious members’ lounge and exclusive hospitality. There really is something for everyone at Osborne Horse Trials.

The first Osborne Horse Trials in 2018 drew huge crowds over the two days. Visitors travelled from near and far to be part of sporting history and eventing fans gathered to enjoy the brand new format, which saw a snappy dressage test, show jumping and a challenging cross country course to finish.

Admission for children under 14 costs just £10. BEDE Events have reserved a limited number of special discounted tickets for English-Heritage members.
