David Howden, president of Cornbury House Horse Trials, leads a team that brings a great knowledge of and passion for the equestrian sport and the highest standards, to add innovation, a focus on sustainability and a fun day out to the eventing calendar.

Cornbury Park Horse Trials ran from 1993-2001 and was one of the most prestigious and popular one-day events of its time – an important pre-Badminton and pre-Burghley trial, where all the eventing stars of that time competed.

Nearly two decades later, the team behind Cornbury House Horse Trials invite you to take part in an unmissable equestrian event in its spectacular setting.  


Though the current COVID-19 restrictions mean that spectators will not be able to join us this year and in spite of the obvious challenges for sponsorship,we remain committed to the equestrian community and the original vision for the event. As such, the 2020 Horse Trials will be run behind closed doors for owners, riders and press only and we will welcome a worldwide audience via livestream.
