Pontispool Horse Trials Welcomes World Champions

Pontispool Horse Trials will welcome championship riders from around the World next weekend, where classes are full and excitement is building.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary year, Pontispool Horse Trials has announced several new sponsors to the 2019 event including Mole Valley Farmers, with the main title sponsor being Wychanger Barton Saddlery who will sponsor ten of the 16 sections.

Visitors can expect to see all-tim

e greats; Andrew Nicholson (NZL), William Fox-Pitt, Alex Bragg, Pippa Funnell, and Harry Meade in action over the weekend alongside many more well-known and respected riders.

Fox-Pitt and Meade both look set for a busy weekend with eight horses each booked in. Meade’s line-up includes Away Cruising, who finished sixth at last year’s Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials.

Blackdown Buildings sponsor the intermediate where the 38 entries include 2018 World Equestrian Games team gold medalist Tom McEwen and Padraig McCarthy who won individual and team silver for Ireland at the same event. Other sponsors are NAF and Connolly’s Red Mills.

Organiser Richard Mitford-Slade said:

It’s great to start the season with a full house of runners. The ground is looking great and we’ve made some new additions to the courses which will all be educational and encouraging to get people off on the right note for the start of the season.”

Entry is £10 per car on Saturday (£5 single occupant). Onsite catering is available on both days.
