Belton International Horse Trials attracts loyal visitors each year who come along to enjoy the extensive shopping opportunities, many and varied competitions and wide variety of attractions for all the family within the delightful surroundings of the National Trust - s Belton Estate set in the very heart of Lincolnshire.
We would like to make your visit to Belton a memorable and happy occasion and offer the following tips and information to help -
There is a wide variety of food and drink on offer across the event site. In addition to our very popular food court, this year we are introducing an ‘Artisan’ food area where you will be able to purchase a wide variety of food and drink including examples of European cuisine and good from local producers.
We ask that spectators with mobility issues bear in mind that the event site has no permanent facilities or paved roads. The event takes place on park ground and terrain is uneven in some places. We are currently unable to provide mobility scooters or similar, but they are available to privately hire locally from Fair Mobility, Bottesford. 01949 845189.
We provide forward parking on production of a valid Blue Badge and also provide accessible toilet facilities. We try our best to accommodate all spectators and will try to accommodate any reasonable request. If you have any particular requirements or questions, please call the office on 01949829061 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have lost any item during the event please go to the Event Office. After the event please call 01929 829061 to check for lost property. We retain lost property for two months.
If you find an item which doesn - t belong to you or anyone around you, please take it to the Organiser - s Office. The team will make their best effort to reunite it with the owner.
A range of tickets are available for the event - please see the Box Office page for more details and prices. We recommend booking in advance as discounts apply to most ticket options and this will speed up your access to the event.

There is plenty for children to see and do at this year’s Belton Horse Trials including a traditional fun fair, family dog show and the fast and furious pony club games…
Advance tickets for Children aged 5-14yrs are available from as little as 2 from our Box Office.These tickets will be scanned in the same way that adult tickets are. Children 4 years of age and under can enter the event for free when accompanied by an adult.
We encourage you to bring your four-legged friends to Belton with both - have a go - dog agility and a family dog show running over the weekend.
Please ensure that dogs are kept on a short lead and under control at all times. Not only is it incredibly dangerous if your dog gets loose but Belton - s Cross Country Courses run through beautiful deer parkland. Any owners with dogs found to be off the lead will incur a penalty fine (donated to our chosen charity) and you may be asked to leave the site. Please ensure you clean up after your dogs.
If you haven’t yet experienced our Live Scoring system it has revolutionised the distribution of scores at Events. The Live Scoring system works alongside the Official Scorer to provide real-time scores to on-site electronic scoreboards and via the web for anyone at the event or unable to attend on the day (e.g. Owners, parents, partners or staff back at the yard.) Please click here for Belton 2016 scores.
A new exciting development to our Live Scoring for Belton International was live movement by movement dressage scores in the Grantham Cup arena (CIC 3*). Each movement was on the scoreboard screens and the internet within moments of the judges giving the score. So you could follow your favourite horses and riders live.
Remember you can also follow the cross country for all sections as it happens. Select - Live XC - from the section list.
