EVENTING NORTH YORKSHIRE
I've driven up to compete twice now, best part of 200 miles but so worth it, fab event
After a devastating 2020, having to cancel Allerton Park Horse Trials left us just as disappointed as our competitors. We felt unable to run a safe event whilst covid-19 still had a grip on our lives and the safety of our volunteers, riders and public had to come first, however we are now in full swing for 2021 preparations!
This year, 2021, marks the 25th anniversary for Allerton park Horse Trials, first started by the late Lord Edward Mowbray in 1996 followed by Lady Nell Mowbray in 2011 who continues to add to the successful event.
Ever since, Allerton has held a strong reputation for being a prestigious event run in a unique countryside setting with stunning lakes, to which 2021 will be no different. We fully intend to run a spectacular show with some added perks to celebrate the fantastic 25 years of horse trials being held here at Allerton park.
On the whole we were very pleased with how the weekend went, the weather was kind to us until Sunday afternoon where it turned a little damp. We also had the cycling to contend with locally however this didn’t cause too much disruption to visitors.
From the dressage to show jumping to cross country all phases ran smoothly with a great appreciation from our volunteers for competitors being prompt. We had great feedback about the Cross Country tracks designed by Ian Stark & Rob McSkimming this year.
It was a great result for Sammy Oliver who won the Advanced and it was great to see so many local riders have a good weekend as well as those travelling several miles to compete with us.
Date for the diary next year is 19th / 20th September 2020!
First time i've visited and certainly wont be the last. lovely XC and all your car park staff clearly had had their weetabix for breakfast given the amount of cars they were pushing out
