The event will be held in the magnificent surroundings of Chatsworth Park in the heart of the Peak District between Friday 11th May – Sunday 13th May 2018.

In 2018 we will again host the first leg of the Event Rider Masters Series. You can also see the stars of the future in the Dubarry Burghley Young Event Horse 4 and 5 year-old classes and back by popular demand is the Arena Eventing Challenge. This is aimed specifically at amateur riders and is held in a grass arena which sees competitors jump a course of show jumps immediately followed by a round of arena cross-country fences with an optimum completion time. Penalties are incurred for knock-downs, refusals and time faults.
