Set in the stunning Cheshire landscape, Somerford Park is widely regarded as a jewel in the crown of Britain’s equestrian facilities offering superb facilities which will play host to 400 horses throughout three days of competition across the bank holiday weekend.

There is so much to watch, not least multi Olympic medallist Carl Hester and Charlotte Dujardin who need little introduction and will both be looking to add to their Somerford Park tally across the weekend. This will be Charlotte’s first appearance at Somerford Park since welcoming baby Isabella. Somerford Park regular, Becky Moody returns to campaign three horses including the nine year old Desperado x Fidertanz stallion James Bond who clinched the Prix St Georges freestyle at the Winter Dressage Championships last month.

The venue will also be welcoming our rising stars of the future with a host of short listed riders for this year’s FEI Dressage European Championships for Youth including: Ruby Hughes, Isabella Caldwell, Sofia Games Abigail Gray, Demi Howard-Cartwright, Fleur Pocock and Lilah Gibbs.

“Somerford Park is excited to welcome the Premier League back and although entries are slightly down on last year we are delighted with the calibre of rider attending which gives dressage enthusiasts in the north of England a unique opportunity to see their favourites in action this Spring,” said event organiser Millie Heffernan.

Head to Somerford Park across the bank holiday weekend to watch a thrilling schedule of dressage. Tickets can be purchased on the gate £10 per car or £5 per person. You can also enjoy the action throughout the weekend with live streaming partners Horse & Country
