Welcome to Gatcombe Park. Set in the heart of the Cotswolds Gatcombe regularly hosts international riders from all over the world for both the Spring Land Rover Novice and Intermediate event and Autumn Whatley Manor Hotel & Spa International CIC* & CIC** competitions.

This year sees the event being run for the 25th time. The Cross Country course utilises a different area of the Gatcombe Park Estate to that used by the Magic Millions Festival of British Eventing, which takes place in early August.

The event starts at 08.30 hrs on Saturday & Sunday. Dressage, show jumping and cross-country phases run throughout. The event attracts many interesting shops, which will include the Gatcombe Collection. There are various catering facilities available to spectators. At various times during both Saturday and Sunday HRH The Princess Royal will present prizes.

Gatcombe Park is situated at Hampton Fields, mid-way between Minchinhampton and Avening; the event will be signposted from both directions. Spectator admission is £6 for a car and occupants and £4 for a programme. Full information about directions accommodation, timetable and all entries are contained on this web site.

ADMISSION TICKETS can only be purchased on the day on the gate.

Admission for car and occupants £6.00
