An extraordinary open air event for everyone, set in the stunning Cheshire countryside
Showcasing elite showjumping in the private grounds of Bolesworth Castle, the Dodson & Horrell Bolesworth International Horse Show brings together iconic riders and horses for five thrilling days of equestrian competition.
An unmissable event in the equestrian calendar, the show offers visitors the opportunity to get up close to riders, as well as enjoy daytime and evening hospitality and entertainment, with additional entertainment for general admission ticket holders during the weekend.
The thing I love most about this event is that it really is for everyone. Whether you’re a horse lover or not, this is an extraordinary event set in stunning countryside – an open-air festival of all things Cheshire – and so much more.
For the horse lovers amongst us then you have one of the best equine shows not just in the UK, but much further afield. From Showing to Showjumping – competitors are elite and very well known in their fields. Everyone’s favourite event – whether you’re in the know or not – is the Puissance. The obstacles are epic and the entertainment is fabulous with immaculate riders and beautiful horses and always with first-class commentary, it’s not to be missed. Add to that the Grand Prix, the Young Horse Finals and the Amateur and Pony classes, and you really do have the very best, world class equine get-together of its kind.
Hospitality at the show is always great fun, superb quality and very well attended – and I’m sure this year will break all the records. From day time packages to evening entertainment, once again there is something for everyone. My favourite is the Puissance & Party on Saturday night, and the business networking lunch is always a superb event with an excellent speaker.
The shopping is also first class with so many great quality Great British brands and makers, and it’s such a treat to stop off for a glass of fizz in one of the on-site bars as you go. The food and drink at Bolesworth is also excellent quality – from street food to local produce stalls and everything in between – Bolesworth International will certainly be the jewel in the Chester and Cheshire events calendar this Summer, and most definitely something wonderful to look forward to.
