Day One of London Capital & Finance Osberton Horse Trials 2018
26th September 2018
Day One of the London Capital & Finance Osberton Horse Trials and we are off to a stylish start!
With the sun blazing down on Nottinghamshire for the first of five days of competition at the stunning Osberton Estate, riders and their horses strutted their stuff for the HiHo Silver Trot Ups!
A chance to ditch the wellies and don the glad rags, the trot up at Osberton didn’t disappoint in the style stakes. Riders from across the country have flocked to the final International event in the British Eventing calendar and what a week it is set to be. Alongside the CCI* & ** trot ups the dressage has commenced with more to follow over the coming days.
An impressive line up of horses have presented to the vets today and we look forward to watching them progress through the competition. Stuart Buntine, Director of BEDE, said of the first day “ This is when the hard work really starts to pay off. The riders arriving on site and watching these future superstars trot up is what Osberton is all about!”
Day 2 will welcome the in hand showing competitors, a brilliant starting point for young foals in their careers. Thursday will also offer a full day of dressage action with the CCI*, CCI**, 4yo & 5yo classes commencing.
