Somerford International Horse Trials Review

Equusbook is proud to have sponsored the 2018 Somerford International Horse Trials with this year’s event attracting a record number of entrants with 1004 riders competing during the 3-day annual equestrian event. With the event attracting the finest competitive horse riders from around the UK, spectators visiting the annual Somerford International Horse Trials witnessed some great equestrian Cross Country, Eventing and Dressage sporting action.

It was a privilege to watch Oliver Townend considered the number 1 UK event rider competing in the Equusbook sponsored event, however, he only managed to achieve 10th place whilst riding Sligo Candyman.



It was also great to watch our very own Equusbook brand ambassador Andrew Heffernan representing AH Eventing competing in the Chelford Farm Supplies sponsored event.

Also, with the official British Eventing and Federation Equestre Internationale official governing bodies applauding the 2018 Somerford International Horse Trials, due to the professionalism of the event organisers. We would also like to thank all the riders who competed in the Equusbook categories and the many volunteers who ensure the Somerford International Horse Trials run smoothly.

We would also like to applaud the individual performance demonstrated by Laura Collett riding Flight Master who won 1st place in the Equusbook sponsored event during the Somerford International Horse Trials. It’s an incredible achievement that Laura Collett also won 2 more events during the Somerford International Horse Trials riding Hanson and London 52. The professional event rider currently in her eighth year of competitive riding is still young at 25 years old and a very exciting prospect for equestrian sport.

With this winning form, it’s no wonder that Laura Collett is currently riding the no.1 ranked horse “Mr Bass” that has led to her being long-listed for the prestigious FEI World Equestrian Games competition. Also, based on the horse riding performance demonstrated at the Somerford International Horse Trials we believe the Laura Collett Eventing team located in Salperton, Cheltenham will become more widely recognised throughout the international world of equestrian sport.
