|Barbury Castle Horse Trials|
Now in it's 10th year Barbury has continued to grow from it's 'experimental' beginnings. The event now runs over 4 days with Dressage today and the novice cross country tomorrow. The main international classes provide the cross country action over the weekend and this is generously supplemented with all manner of entertainment and action throughout the event, not forgetting the ever expanding shopping opportunities (not just bits and bridles!).

With so many New Zealand riders based locally, Barbury is a very popular event with the Kiwis, and it's position in the calendar make it a perfectly timed prep run particularly in the championship years (like this year). Marlborough based Andrew Nicholson is one of the most successful at Barbury, and will no doubt be looking to win the to prize again this year.
