Centrally located in the East Midlands, within easy reach of the A1, A52 and A607, Belton International has become a firm favourite in the eventing calendar. The Horse Trials attracts many of the best event riders in the world, as well as crowds of spectators who flock in each year to enjoy the stunning setting, top class sport and the many other attractions laid on by the organisers.
These include everything from classic cars, dog display teams and ‘have a go’ dog agility, to an Inter-Hunt Relay, shopping at over 90 trade stands, crafts and a children’s interactive zone. Sunday’s Gate Jumping competition is a real crowd pleaser, and for those with energy to spare, the Grantham Cup 10k Trail Run is the region’s favourite off road run. With so much on offer it really is a great day out for all the family, whatever their interests.
New for 2017 is a dedicated Members Area. Members will not only benefit from forward parking (less far to carry those bags of shopping), but a comfortable marquee in which to enjoy a free tea or coffee, and toilet facilities. For those in need of a rest it’s the perfect place to read the paper and re-charge the batteries after some dedicated course walking or shopping.
Advance tickets, including for Membership, offer a substantial discount on gate prices. Additionally, individually tailored hospitality packages are available. From breakfast meetings to leisurely lunches with family, friends or clients, anything from silver service to finger food buffets can be accommodated for almost any size of gathering.
