World-class riders, thrilling demonstrations, gastronomic delights and shopping opportunities: the Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials is one of the most exciting events on the sporting calendar. This autumn’s edition will see the return of Town & Country’s very own shopping Pavilion, following a successful inaugural appearance last year.

A celebration of British heritage and craftsmanship, the Pavilion will benefit from a prime location in the central shopping village and will feature carefully selected brands that reflect the magazine’s core values and themes. Encompassing fashion, beauty, jewellery, art, country pursuits, pets, travel, property, interiors and entertaining, the stands will offer a luxurious shopping experience in the idyllic setting of Blenheim Palace’s beautiful grounds.

The annual Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials sees top riders compete in three main categories: dressage, cross-country and show-jumping. Alongside the main eventing action, visitors can watch a variety of team competitions, amateur dressage contests and a high-jump challenge, as well as equine, sports and classic-car displays. The shopping village, food-and-drink hall and several children’s play areas complete the offering, which makes for the perfect family day in the countryside.

The Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials run from 13 to 17 September; you can buy tickets here.
