A Wonderfully accessible venue with world class views… perfect for a horse mad family day out!
Frenchfield Park Horse Trials enjoyed it’s first running in April 2018 and was given a second date in September where even larger numbers of competitors enjoyed the undulating terrain and sandy going so suitable for the horses. With excellent viewing and ringside seating these horse trials are a perfect way to entertain those horse mad children. And for 2019 we’ve made it very affordable to visit – admission will be just £5 per Adult and children enter FREE. Classes include Novice, U18, BE100, U18, BE90 & BE80T and may be entered HERE

Located just 2 miles from M6 Junction 40 ‘Gateway to The North Lakes’ reaching Frenchfield Horse Trials couldn’t be easier.
With a traditional outdoor grassland type setting, this fabulously open site with views across to both The Lake District and Northern Pennine Fells provides spectators and participants with a magnificent backdrop for each event.
We often see Olympic and European champions with their younger horses competing at our events – the action is never far away and spectators can enjoy the spectacle all the more for it.
A typical day sees the dressage start at 8 am, the Show Jumping at 9 am and, the Cross Country by 10 am and these will run until late afternoon. Full commentary on the cross country action is provided. Class scores may be viewed on TV screens in the Main Marquee open to everyone.

Specialist trade and catering stands are on site. There are disabled access areas. Parking is designated into Public and Competitors areas. Directions to the event are yellow road signs from A6/A66 Roundabout. See Map below.

Once again. huge thanks go out to our title, class and fence sponsors throughout 2019 for providing us with the financial support needed to run the Cumbria Horse Trials Series.
The sport needs sponsors to cover the costs of professionally run events, which now must meet the minimum standards set by British Eventing. Expectations from everyone reach new highs every year and without secondary financial sources beyond competitor entry fees the events would neither be viable or sustainable.
Most support inevitably comes from businesses involved with the equestrian world or from generous supporters of horse trials through their connection as an owner, rider or volunteer and this key financial support allows them to reach competitors both ringside, out on the cross country courses, over the PA system and across the digital media. Just occasionally we make it into the print in newspapers and magazines!
In 2019 we will look to concentrate the sponsorship into the Warwick Hall and Frenchfield venues and will welcome one or two more businesses to join the Cumbria Horse Trials Series and to be part of further developments we have planned for the classes and sections on offer to competitors.
