Bolesworth invite schools to 2017 International Horse Show for FREE!

The Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show, which takes place from 14th to 18th June this year, located 10 miles south of Chester, is fast becoming the UK’s most high profile Showjumping event. Offering wide-ranging entertainment, the team is excited to once again invite primary schools across the region to their FREE Educational & Fun School’s Day on Thursday 15th June from 10am to 3 pm.


Following on from last year’s success, where almost 1000 children turned out to join in the fun, the totally free of charge Schools Day is open to every primary school in the region. Aimed at introducing this ever-expanding event to a wider audience, the day gives children the opportunity to experience the atmosphere of a top-class sporting event, including; Young Horse Viewing Trials and International Showjumping.


In addition to the featured equine events, there will be numerous educational and fun activities taking place throughout the School’s Day, including; workshops hosted by The Brooke (Action for Working Horses and Donkeys), The Pony Club and Corner Exotics. There will also be author book readings, model making and the chance to meet animals big and small.


Nina Barbour, Founder and President of The Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show comments: “Bolesworth is now much more than just a Showjumping event, with an incredible and diverse range of activities at visitor’s fingertips. However, the equestrian element will always remain at the heart of everything that we do. Dealing with these animals on a daily basis means that we sometimes take it for granted and being able to introduce people and children, in particular, to the vast array of joy, excitement and opportunity that they can bring is priceless.”


With top international showjumpers, dressage riders and Olympic medalists, who will be competing in the magnificent main show arenas, the event provides children and adults alike with a perfect introduction to this exciting sport. This year welcomes an exhilarating new timetable of events, including new classes, family entertainment, a diverse range of food and drink options, shopping and much more.
