SsangYong Blenheim Palace Horse Trials 2020

SsangYong Blenheim Palace Horse Trials will sadly not be running in 2020.

 

It is with regret that British Eventing, alongside the Blenheim Estate and sponsors SsangYong, announce that the SsangYong Blenheim Palace Horse Trials will not be running in September 2020.

The financial viability of British Eventing remains a Board priority, and as the Blenheim Palace Horse Trials is a BE owned event it would not be prudent to continue to move forward with event planning, and the costs that this would incur, with the level of uncertainty which exists about whether the event will be able to run. The government have indicated that a level of social distancing is likely to remain necessary until at least the end of this year, and the potential impact this would have on the viability of the event in terms of spectator numbers has meant that the difficult decision has been taken to cancel this year’s event.  

We would like to thank our sponsors SsangYong, Blenheim Palace and the organising team for their support and understanding. Whilst we are all disappointed to not be able to welcome competitors, owners, spectators, exhibitors, volunteers and officials to the event this year, we look forward to seeing you all back at the 2021 Blenheim Palace Horse Trials.
