We have been closely monitoring the status of the COVID-19 pandemic as events have unfolded Nationally and Internationally.

Following the Government public health guidance regarding social distancing, and the termination of non-essential travel, together with the statement that emergency services have been withdrawn from supporting mass gatherings, it is clear that events of this scale pose far too great a risk to continue for the foreseeable future.

We have therefore made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show which was due to take place from 9 – 14 June.

We would like to acknowledge that many riders, visitors and supporters will be disappointed by this news, and would like to reassure everyone that we are totally committed to planning a spectacular event for next year.

All pre-purchased tickets and Hospitality will be refunded in full.  Online bookings will be automatically processed within 28 working days.  If you booked Hospitality via our office, our team will be in touch shortly.

Nina Barbour said: “Whilst we are very disappointed, our focus is to support the huge efforts being made by the government to keep us all safe.  The Bolesworth Elite Yearling Auction was also due to take place at Bolesworth on Friday 12 June.  We are currently evaluating the feasibility of running this as an online auction on a similar date, and are committed to supporting the industry in any way that we can under the current challenging circumstances.”
