The Festival of British eventing is an annual event that takes place in August at Gatcombe Park. The Festival incorporates the British Open, Intermediate and Novice Championships with the new Amateur Novice championship being added in 2015 for the first time.
It is a favourite event in the diary for both riders and spectators alike.
The British Open title is one of the most prestigious titles to be won in the world. The list of previous champions certainly speaks volumes to the prestige and world-wide nature of the competition with names like Mark Todd, Andrew Nicholson, William Fox-Pitt, Mary King, Andrew Hoy and Tina Cook.
Alongside the Top Class eventing there is a shopping village that grows every year, arena attractions and entertainment for the whole family.
SEL’s involvement is to assist the Festival team by generating more sponsorship to help the event grow and develop.
