Cornbury House Horse Trials 2023


For a great day out in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, Cornbury House Horse Trials is a date for your diary.

The event is one of the newest, most exciting international horse trials in the UK, and this year takes place from Wednesday 6 – Sunday 10 September 2023 at Cornbury Horse, Charlbury in Oxfordshire and will offer something just a bit different this year.

The five-day international event which was re-established by founder David Howden back in 2020 following an absence for a number of years will have a new look and feel for 2023 with some new and exciting additions for spectators to enjoy over the five days in early September.

While equestrian action will take centre stage, new for 2023, a celebration of all things food and drink with the introduction of “Field Food”, offering a showcase of delicious locally-produced artisan options for spectators to enjoy. This will include open Asados (Argentinian barbecue food), a range of offerings from local farms, plus a selection of local ales to enjoy from the on-site public bar, the aptly named ‘Wychwood Inn’, with further details to be released.

On the Saturday and Sunday of the event (9-10 September), families with young children can enjoy immersive ‘Wildwood Crafts’ throughout the afternoon with children 12 and under attending for free. To round the event off, there will be evening entertainment once the equestrian action has finished for the day on Friday, 8 September and Saturday, 9 September with live music and much more.

David Howden said: “I am very excited about the way in which we are developing Cornbury House Horse Trials. My passions for horses, promoting youth, Cornbury and the local area are being united to produce a wonderful celebration of all these elements and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.

“We have been working hard to re-establish the horse trials and are now looking forward to taking it to the next level. I look forward to welcoming everyone to our fourth year and creating a modern take on this equestrian tradition while giving our athletes, horses, owners and partners a first-class experience.”

With its visually stunning backdrops of Cornbury House and the Wychwood Forest, thrilling sport and family-friendly entertainment across the weekend, Cornbury House Horse Trials promises a wonderful afternoon for all.
