The Festival of British Eventing at Gatcombe Park, which is presented by British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA), takes place from 7-9 August 2015 and is one of the highlights of the equestrian calendar, providing riders with the opportunity of competing at one of the most prestigious events of the season. There are plenty of new and exciting changes to the Festival this year; with brand new entertainment and significant alterations to the cross country course, 2015 will be even better than ever.

Held in the stunning location of Gatcombe Park, the Festival main arena hosts the show jumping phase of the competition as well as a full timetable of family entertainment over the weekend. This includes the excitement of the Shetland Pony Grand National, the grandeur of the Dressage to Music display, the exhilaration of the Scurry Driving, and this year for the first time the Kangeroo Kid will thrill crowds with amazing dare devil stunts aboard his quad bike.

The Park Bowl provides the perfect location for spectators to watch the cross country action and enjoy the beautiful setting of the Park.
