ENTRIES are open for this year’s Barbury International Horse Trials, which runs from July 4 – 7.

More than 1,000 horse and rider combinations will be competing over the four days, including many of the biggest names in the sport.

Last year’s winners included long time British team member Nicola Wilson, French favourite Thomas Carlile, Australian Burghley winner Christopher Burton and this year’s Badminton champion and World Games team gold medallist Piggy French.

Barbury International is located on the Wiltshire Downs, approximately five miles from Marlborough, and features a challenging undulating cross-country course inside the Downland bowl.

Spectators can purchase tickets online in advance or in person on the day.

Entry is free on Thursday, July 4, with tickets for other days from £7 available on www.barburyhorsetrials.co.uk.
