Hamptons International Sponsors The Festival of British Eventing at Gatombe Park

Leading residential agent Hamptons International is delighted to be a sponsor at The Festival of British Eventing, presented by the British Equestrian Trade Association, for the 13th consecutive year. The Festival is an annual horse trial held over three days on the first weekend in August (Friday 5th – Sunday 7th) and takes place at Gatcombe Park, home of HRH The Princess Royal.

Over the weekend The Festival will play host to top class eventing and incorporate four championship classes including the British Open, Intermediate and Novice Championships, as well as the National Restricted Novice Championship, The Corinthian Cup.

Top arena attractions include the popular Dressage to Music, the Shetland Pony Grand National and - this year - The Devil’s Horsemen Cossacks are returning to The Festival after a nine-year break which is something not to be missed.

Andrew Marshall, Regional Director at Hamptons International comments: “The Festival of British Evening at Gatcombe Park is a true highlight in the sporting calendar and we’re delighted to be the proud sponsors for the 13th year. The weekend provides fun for all the family with the opportunity to watch top class horses and riders competing at this prestigious venue. A must see for this year is the adrenaline fueled Devil’s Horsemen who are hotly tipped to steal the show with their impressive stunts before leaving to film for the next series of Game of Thrones.

As long standing sponsors of The Festival of British Eventing we’re proud to host guests at the Hamptons International Garden Club and welcome any visitors to our pop-up branch which will be situated in the main shopping village. As usual we are offering face painting and colouring for the children and we will be showcasing our finest equestrian properties with experts on hand to assist with all property related enquiries.”

Hamptons International will once again be partnering with Harry Meade, (www.harrymeade.com)one of Britain’s leading event riders. Harry represented Great Britain as part of the silver medal winning team at the 2014 World Championships in Normandy. Harry, also a BBC commentator, will be a guest of Hamptons International on Friday and will treat diners at the Hamptons International Garden Club to a Q&A session followed by a guided Cross Country course walk.

Harry Meade, British Event Rider says:I’m delighted to be teaming up with Hamptons International at The Festival of British Eventing for another year. As ever the weekend is set to be a great one, The Festival is in its 34th year and is a wonderful event for equestrian enthusiasts and those looking for a fun filled weekend in the stunning Cotswolds.
