This weekend sees the first Burgham Horse Trials of 2014 take place and having attended the event on many occasions – and watched my horse compete (pictured) – I would certainly recommend a visit for those looking for an alternative day out.
Whether you’re a horse rider or not, there’s plenty going on, with riders undertaking dressage, showjumping and cross country throughout the day.
There are also catering facilities and trade stands located at the venue and visitors are also able to bring their own lunch or picnics.
Burgham Horse Trails is located just off the A1 between Morpeth and Alnwick. The event runs on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th March and entry, which is payable on arrival, costs £10 per car.
The address of the venue is Burgham Park, Morpeth, NE65 9QP.
Unfortunately I’m unable to attend this one but I’d love to hear from anyone who does make a trip to the event!
