About Us

The next Badminton Horse Trials will take place from Wednesday 5th to Sunday 9th May 2021. The event is staged within the beautiful grounds of the Badminton Estate in South Gloucestershire (UK).

Wednesday is the first day of the ticketed event with our array of over 500 tradestands opening for business, the International competition kicking off with the ‘First Horse Inspection’ in the afternoon as well as the cross country culmination of the amateur eventing competition, the ‘Science Supplements Cup’. Wednesday is also when the Dubarry Burghley Young Event Horse Class takes place.

The International event continues with Dressage on the Thursday and Friday where visitors can enjoy expert dressage displays on both days from around 12:30. The Stallion parade is an added bonus to Friday visitors in the main arena from 5 pm approx.

The Saturday crowds at Badminton will enjoy the Shetland Pony Grand National in the main arena before the thrills and spills of the Cross Country phase starts.

Sunday is the culmination of the International competition, and is a Show Jumping test over knock down arena jumps.

This annual spectacle offers a great family day out, with children and dogs very welcome to enjoy great hospitality options, shopping, top level equestrian sport and more in a stunning location.
