The British Eventing Support Trust is delighted to announce its selection as the official charity partner for the prestigious Cornbury Horse Trials, taking place from 11th to 15th September 2024. The event, set in the spectacular Cornbury Park near the town of Charlbury in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, promises an exciting lineup of equestrian competitions and activities.

Cornbury Horse Trials hosts international classes at CCI3*-S and CCI2*-S level, British Eventing intermediate and open intermediate classes, as well as the Howden Way Youth Championships CCI3*-S and CCI2*-S classes. With such diverse competition on offer, the partnership with the BE Support Trust aims to not only elevate the profile of the charity among riders of all levels, but also to raise funds for its vital work supporting the physical and mental health of British Eventing riding members.

Jane Hunter-Walsh, general manager of the British Eventing Support Trust, expressed her enthusiasm for the partnership:

“We’re thrilled to have been chosen as the official charity partner for this year’s Cornbury Horse Trials. It’s a super event that’s always so well attended by competitors and spectators which means it will be the perfect place to spread the word about our work. We’re busy planning great fundraising events so keep a close eye on our social media for more info.”

David Howden, Founder and President of Cornbury House Horse Trials added: “As a passionate supporter of eventing and of developing young riders through the Howden Way, I know the job Jane and her team do at the British Eventing Support Trust (BEST) is vital. They aim to ensure the physical and mental wellbeing of the eventing community throughout the country.  So I can’t wait to help them not simply raise funds but increase awareness about this enormously valuable work.”

Throughout Cornbury House Horse Trials, the British Eventing Support Trust will be hosting a series of events and activities, as well as having staff on hand to answer visitor questions. While specific details of these events are yet to be confirmed, attendees can expect plenty of opportunities to learn about the charity’s mission and contribute to its cause.

The British Eventing Support Trust looks forward to engaging with the equestrian community at Cornbury Horse Trials and is grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with such a prestigious event.
