Gatcombe Horse Trials
The annual Gatcombe Horse Trials are held in the spectacular setting of Gatcombe Park in Gloucestershire, home to the Princess Royal and her family. Leading riders take part from around the world, ensuring an exciting and extremely competitive event.
The three stages of the competition include the dressage, which consists of a sequence of movements to test the suppleness and obedience of the horse. The show jumping tests the agility, precision and control of horse and rider over a course of jumps, and in the middle of these two segments is the exciting cross-country competition.
