Royal Welsh, Aston-le-Partitions eventing and a Summer season Regionals double


  • From the Royal Welsh Show to top event horses at Aston-le-Walls, we bring you our regular round-up of the coming week in horse sport…

    1. Royal Welsh Show

    Dates: 18-21 July
    More info: rwas.wales/royal-welsh
    How to watch: s4c.cymru

    Why we’re excited about it: four days of top-class equestrian competition held at the legendary venue of Builth Wells. While all types of horses and ponies will be on display, the show is the ultimate shop window for Welsh pony and cob breeders who prepare their best stock all year round to compete. Who will take home the leading supreme titles and cement themselves in the record books? The show is also regarded as one of the pinnacle events in the British agricultural calendar, so expect a showcase of other champion livestock, too.

    3. Aston-le-Walls Horse Trials

    Dates: 22-24 July
    More info: schedule on British Eventing website

    Why we’re excited about it: this fixture always attracts a host of top-class horses and riders for the advanced classes, with many using it as a prep run for Burghley Horse Trials or an autumn championship. The two regular advanced sections include among their entries the likes of Austin O’Connor and Colorado Blue (who were very impressive at last year’s Tokyo Olympics), Zara Tindall and Class Affair, Tom McEwen with last year’s Pau Horse Trials runner-up CHF Cooliser, the 2019 Burghley winners Pippa Funnell and MGH Grafton Street and Kitty King’s eventing World Championship long-listed horse Vendredi Biats. Bubby Upton has four horses in the under-25 class, where she can expect challenges from on-form pairs such as Mollie Summerland (recent Barbury winner with Charly Van Ter Heiden), Felicity Collins (RSH Contend Or) and Tom Woodward (Low Moor Lucky). In the section for eight- and nine-year-old horses, watch out for last year’s seven-year-old national champion Quidam De Lux (Stephen Heal), Outback II (Laura Collett) and MHS Brown Jack (Tom McEwen).

    4. Port Royal Summer Regional Championship

    Dates: 22-24 July
