It is with huge regrets we have taken the unavoidable decision to cancel

Allerton Park Horse Trials 2020.

The limitations brought on by the current Covid-19 situation would make it impossible to deliver our exciting and hospitable event with its’ customary high level of safety standards, for this season.

Our immeasurable thanks go out to all our loyal sponsors, and all those who so generously support us and give their time to help build and run the event every year.

We will be back in 2021 for our 25th Anniversary Trials. Please don’t forget to add our event dates -  18/19th September 2021, to your dairy. We look forward to sharing another exciting event with you all then in our wonderful Park.

Best wishes for the rest of the season from

The Committee at Allerton Park Horse Trials.
