Barbury International Horse Trials

Thursday 6th July - Sunday 9th July 2017

The world’s top eventers are at Barbury ahead of the the FEI European Eventing Championships. The Barbury Castle Estate comprises 2000 acres of farmland, woodland and downland just outside Marlborough in Wiltshire. Horses have always been at the centre of the Estate. The name Barbury has come to be synonymous with top quality racing and training.

Barbury Castle trainer Alan King now presides over one of the largest National Hunt training centres in the UK.  He had success at Cheltenham in 2006, 2007, 2008 (including Champion Hurdle winner Katchit), 2009 and was back in the winners circle for 2011.  He also sent out three winners at the Aintree Festival in 2009 which included the Grade One winners Walkon and Voy Por Ustedes.  Alan had his highest number of winners (136) in the 2008/2009 season finishing third in the trainers table.
