Olympic contenders confirm final run at Bolesworth

The excitement continues to build at the Dodson & Horrell Bolesworth International Horse Show as the arenas are primed, prepped and ready to welcome 350 riders, including Olympic contenders Holly Smith & Ben Maher for Team GB, Michael Duffy for Ireland and multi-talented Christopher Burton for the Australian eventing team. Hosted from Wednesday 7th – Sunday 12th July, Bolesworth are excited to welcome back riders, owners and spectators for the first time in three years.

As one of their final events before embarking on their trip to the Tokyo games, Ben and Holly will be competing for a share of the impressive £150,000 prize fund at Bolesworth, alongside a truly international line up of leading combinations from Sweden, America, Germany and Denmark.
Joining Ben and Holly at Bolesworth and aiming for a spot in Sunday’s highly anticipated Grand Prix final will be household names and crowd favourites John & Michael Whitaker (joined by a number of fellow family members including Jack, Rob & William), alongside a strong Irish contingent led by Daniel Coyle, Richard Howley, Trevor Breen and former Bolesworth Grand Prix winner, Anthony Condon. Hoping to continue their good form will be speed specialists and seriously competitive riders Laura Renwick, Guy Williams & the up-and-coming Joe Stockdale, already posting wins on both the national and international circuits.
Nina Barbour, Managing Director of Bolesworth, said: “Sport is truly back at Bolesworth and we’re so excited to welcome spectators, competitors and Olympic riders to enjoy five days of elite sport.

“To have world-class combinations competing here as part of their Olympic campaign is hugely exciting for all of us to enjoy. It’s a unique and special opportunity for our visitors to be able to come and watch Team GB riders live in their final competitive moments before heading to the games. We would like to wish all our Olympic athletes the very best of luck!
