The event is staged in the spectacular grounds of the grade II listed Southfield House where visitors are welcome to come along and watch top riders in action in beautiful unspoilt farmland.
For three days, Southfield House, which is close to the A361 near the village of Nunney, becomes a hive of activity and as well as sporting action there’s the chance to browse an eclectic range of trade stands and food outlets, all positioned around the main arena where showjumping takes place throughout the three days of the competition.
Selling everything from saddles to furniture, they will keep even the most seasoned shoppers busy, with benches around the perimeter of the arena enabling you to take a seat and watch the showjumping every now and again. Then you can head out onto the cross country course and watch all the action over the fixed timber fences. Midway, there’s a coffee stop to refuel.
The event attracts some of the top names from the sport of eventing international stars with Zara Phillips, Harry Meade, Sam Griffiths, Kristina Cook and Izzy Taylor all competing there in the past.
