Charlotte Dujardin and Carl Hester will be showcasing their dressage skills at this year’s Bolesworth International Horse Show.
Set in the spectacular grounds of Bolesworth Castle, the four-day show (16-19 June) boasts an exciting program of events.
This year’s international will have an added extra with a dressage to music class on the opening day.
Olympic medallists and dressage icons Dujardin and Hester will be strutting their stuff at Bolesworth, in what will be just 50 days before they begin to defend team gold in Rio.
Show president, Nina Barbour, is delighted to have the household names participating at the Cheshire venue.
“This is significant news for Bolesworth. Charlotte and Carl are household names who have done so much for the sport of dressage, and we are absolutely thrilled that they will be taking part,” she said.
Numerous top showjumpers will once again battle it out for top prize money at the four-star event.
Scott Brash and Nick Skelton are among the quality field of international riders, along with Michael and William Whitaker.
Brash and Skelton were part of the gold medal-winning showjumping team at London 2012. With both hoping to defend their title in Rio this summer, they will no doubt be using Bolesworth as a significant trial run.
In addition to the dressage and showjumping on offer, there will be unmissable action from the puissance as well as para showjumping, an exciting jockey challenge and a young Sport Horse Auction.
