Welcome to the
Belton International Horse Trials
Welcome to Belton International Horse Trials. Belton has been running since its inception in 1980 with BEDE at the helm for the last 13 years and is definitely a firm favourite in the eventing calendar. Belton has grown significantly during these years with the motto becoming ‘More Than Just Horses…’ The event attracts top riders and horses from all over the world and spectators from far and wide come to watch the top class sport. However, that is not the only thing they come to see, with a variety of attractions from Pony Club Games to dog display teams and classic cars and everything in between – there really is something for everyone. For those who love to shop there are over 90 trade stands selling a vast array of goods for horse and rider plus fashion and lifestyle as well as the interactive zone, where you can get hands on with hounds, try your hand at willow weaving or art workshops and take part in the fun dog show or dog agility – a great day out for all the family!
The Horse Trials is run at Belton by kind permission of the National Trust, and we are hugely grateful to them for allowing us access to their beautiful parkland.
Download the App
Also, as in our motto of moving with the times, this year at Belton we are moving from a paper based programme to an app! We feel this is a necessary move, it will enable us to present a much more up to date running orders and information for you.
Please download this before you arrive, the app is called Eventing App and can be downloaded from the apple store,it is FREE OF CHARGE. Even if you are not at Belton you will be able to keep up to date via our live scoring, view the cross country courses via the CrossCountry App, and keep up to date of any other information. There will be a notification facility so please allow the push notifications when prompted. This is very much work in progress.
