Wilton Horse Trials announces new title sponsor

Anthony Ffooks, organiser of Wilton Horse Trials, which take place in Wilton Park, near Salisbury, Wiltshire on Saturday July 25th and Sunday 26th 2020, is delighted to announce Wiltshire Life as the event’s new title sponsors.


The Horse Trials is set in the beautiful Wilton Park, overlooking Wilton House and the Palladian Bridge. All phases of the event are easily accessible; there are special disabled parking and facilities. There are always a good range of trade stands and multicultural food and drink.

This will be the 44th Wilton Horse Trials and 23rd for organiser, Anthony Ffooks who would like to acknowledge the amazing local support from businesses and volunteers of which there are over 150 for each day, without whose help Wilton Horse Trials would not be possible. It attracts a truly international range of competitors and has classes from BE 100 to Open Intermediate, typically around 550 competitors each year.

Anthony Ffooks, said: “I am delighted to welcome Wiltshire Life as the first new title sponsor for 15 years. It is great that they are a well-established and well-regarded Wiltshire based company and I look forward to a very fruitful association with them and being able to demonstrate that ‘horsepower’ is not only in cars!”

Jane Kennedy, publishing director of Wiltshire Life, said: “Wiltshire Life has been at the heart of the county for more than 70 years, therefore it seemed natural for us to sponsor this long-established traditional county event. Set in the stunning parkland of Wilton Estate, it is a place that has played an important role not only in the history of Wiltshire, but of the whole country. We are delighted to support the Wilton Horse Trials, an event that attracts world class competitors alongside young and rising riders of the future, many based here in Wiltshire. We are looking forward to a weekend of sporting excellence and to meeting everyone attending the event.”

Wilton Horse Trials is a true family day out, there are generally more than 3,000 spectators over the weekend and there are excellent views and viewing and dogs are welcome, with the usual welfare provisos in hot weather (there is water available on site). There are provisions made for disabled access to most areas.
