To celebrate the continuing expansion of the all-new Bolesworth International, June the 14th to 18th, the team behind the event has pulled together an exciting competition which will provide a pair of weekend tickets to the must-do Equestrian and Lifestyle festival for one lucky winner, together with a place with their own horse, on an exclusive clinic with Geoff Billington at Bolesworth Castle in Cheshire, on Tuesday the 11th of April 2023.
Legendary British showjumper Geoff Billington is a double Olympian and Hickstead Derby winner. He’s running the clinic with other top showjumpers as part of their preparation for the upcoming Bolesworth International. Geoff will be competing at Bolesworth, and also co-hosting a Masterclass with fellow Olympian Nicola Wilson on Wednesday 14th June.
The Bolesworth International will showcase world-class CSI 3* International showjumping along with classes for amateur levels as well as 5, 6 and 7-year-old Young Horses, but there’ll also be favourites such as Puissance, Fancy Dress, Mini Major and Ride & Drive.
New-for-2023 are an Eventing Grand Prix and Masterclass, a ‘Trooping the Colour’ Charity Park Ride, open to all levels of riders, in aid of the Riding for the Disabled Association and the amazing spectacle of Ben Atkinson and his incredible stunt horses.
From Friday, the lifestyle aspect of the event opens with a huge shopping village selling equestrian and premium brands, celebrity food and drink experiences, live music, children’s activities, action sports, family fun, have-a-go zones, and weekend camping!
The winner of the Bolesworth Facebook competition will be offered a bespoke training session with Geoff, which can be tailored to the rider’s jumping level, whether that’s 50cm or 1.25m. The prize includes, amongst many others, a haul of goodies from Bolesworth International brand partners such as a bag of feed worth £100 from Dodson Horrell, a media package from Events Through a Lens, and a set of Le Mieux Tendon boots, hood and saddle pad. A complimentary lunch for the winner and up to two guests is also part of the money-can’t-buy package, as is the opportunity to meet influencers and high-profile riders, who will contest the Bolesworth International in June, such as last year’s Grand Prix winner Louise Saywell, Richard Howley, Harlow Luna White (and Popcorn), Georgia Kavulok, Meg Elphick, Kate Lewis, Yaz Pinchen and Saskia Davies.
