Barbury Castle International Horse Trials hosts the third leg in the Event Rider Masters.
Event Riders Masters
The Event Rider Masters is the highlight of the Barbury International Horse Trials.
In its inaugural year, the Event Rider Masters was conceived to attract a wider audience and offer a more exciting experience to spectators onsite and watching on TV. ERM riders compete across six CIC*** events for high value prizes never before seen in the world of short-format Eventing.
Winners of individual legs receive £50,000, with the overall winner receiving a further £50,000. Following the first two legs at Chatsworth House and Bramham, French rider Astier Nicholas is top of the leader board.
Enhanced Spectator Experience
New technology and reactive data will be used to enhance the on and off-site spectator experience delivering a more exciting, immersive experience.
The competition will be broadcast live on eventridermasters.tv, with highlights shown on Sky Sports and Horse and Country TV.
Incredible Views of Cross Country Course
Barbury Castle Estate is located in Wiltshire, on the beautiful Marlborough Downs.
Set in a natural bowl Barbury offers probably the best views of a cross-country circuit – anywhere. The course has been designed by Mark Philips to test the skills and courage of the world’s finest horses and riders. Study the course.
Home Event for World Class Event Riders
Wiltshire is a county steeped in eventing, attracting an unparalleled concentration of world class event riders.
Barbury is the local event for Tim Price (NZ), Astier Nicolas (FR), Rebecca Howard (CAN), Sir Mark Todd (NZ), Flora Harris (GB), Jonelle Price (NZ) and Andrew Nicholson (NZ), who all live within 15 miles of Barbury Castle Estate.
Putting on a Good Show
The atmosphere is welcoming and the emphasis is on competition and putting on a good show.
There’s a huge variety of quality food and drinks stall. Shoppers can shop to their hearts content at over 60 outlets in the shopping village, plus there’s a live stage show we’re told featuring dancing sheep.
Borrowing a little from the summer music festival ethos, Barbury Castle Estate invite spectators to come and camp for the duration of the event, so you can soak up the atmosphere for the whole weekend.
