Please enjoy a weekend of exciting sport in our historic parkland.

Watch the harmony of horse and rider coming together in dressage. Then move on to our lively central arena with plenty of tradestands and food stalls to see some exciting rounds of show jumping. Leading you onto the ultimate challenge of eventing - the cross country with it’s courses taking you out across open countryside to view horse and rider tackling a huge variety of obstacles at speed.

We welcome dogs, but please be sure to have your them on a secure short lead at all times to ensure the competitors safety and enable you to appreciate and respect this special environment and enjoy it’s wildlife.


The Allerton Park Horse Trials Committee is deeply indebted to the events’ sponsors, who enable us to maintain our cross-country courses to a high standard and introduce new jumps and features such as the Dew Pond complex.

The committee is also most grateful to Nell Lady Mowbray for generously hosting the event within this beautiful setting. We wish to thank the family for making their estate and staff available to prepare the park and for the many years the horse trials has run.

We are enormously indebted to our huge band of loyal volunteers - dressage and fence judges, timekeepers, stewards, T-run staff and many more who, so generously give their time throughout the year, without whose help, this event would be unable to run. We owe special thanks to our highly professional emergency teams of doctors and veterinary surgeons, whose expertise and advice is totally invaluable.

And finally, special thanks to the Estate staff for their work throughout the year, and our grazier, Simon Armstrong, who looks after the pasture so well, and is exceptionally tolerant of our requests to move his sheep about. Additionally we would like to offer our thanks to Ripon Farm Services for their generous loan of their exhibition trailer for our dressage personnel, and the use of their Gators. We also are very appreciative of the loan of dressage boards from Askham Bryan College.


Allerton Park Horse Trials are honored to be a beneficiary of the 2012 Olympic Legacy in the form of two jump complexes -The Chestnut Logs and the East End Market Barrows. These were jumped by our Silver-medal winning GB team. NO DOGS OFF LEADS - FINE £50

Events Timing Team

White Rose Events Timing Team

Today’s cross country timekeepers and starters are part of the White Rose Events Timing Team.

The team originally timed motor sport events for example the RAC Rally and it was through this that the team was approached by Bramham Horse Trials and asked if they would be interested in timing a different type of horse power. We have timed at Bramham Horse Trials every year since 1974.

We give our time freely as volunteers to Yorkshire events covering approximately 21 days per year. As with all volunteers we are of varying ages and backgrounds but most of the team have been involved with horses at some stage and we enjoy the sport of eventing.

We are always looking for new volunteers to join us.

Today’s cross country timekeepers and starters are part of the White Rose Events Timing Team. Originally a motor sport timing team, officials, who were running a special stage on the RAC Rally at Bramham Park, were approached by the organisers of Bramham Horse Trials and asked if they would be interested in timing the horse trials. We have timed at Bramham Horse Trials every year since 1974. Only a very few of the original team are still involved, but others have joined us. We currently support events mainly in Yorkshire for approximately 30 days each year where we get to chat to the Olympic stars of London 2012 and the future stars of tomorrow.

If anyone is interested in joining us, please contact Mrs Gay Steel on 07932 900798 email for further details.

If anyone is interested in joining us please contact Mrs. Gay Steel 01423 501091 for further details.

The Allerton Park Horse Trials 2023 will be conducted in accordance with the British Eventing Rules 2023.


Save for death or personal injury caused by negligence of the organisers or anyone for whom they are in law responsible, neither the organisers of this event nor British Eventing, nor any agent, employee or representative of these bodies accepts any liability for any accident, loss, damage, injury or illness to horses, owners, riders, spectators, land, cars, their contents and accessories or any other person or property whatsoever, whether caused by their negligence, breach of contract or in any other way whatsoever.


The Organiser has the right:

a) to cancel any class or event

b) to divide any class

c) to transfer competitors between sections of a class

d) to alter the advertised times

e) to refuse any entry


The organisers of this event have taken reasonable precautions to ensure the health and safety of everyone present. For these measures to be effective, everyone must take all reasonable precautions to avoid and prevent accidents occurring, and must obey the instructions of the organisers, officials and stewards.


Any intervention by a third party, whether solicited or not, with the object of facilitating the task of the rider or helping his horse, is considered unauthorised assistance and the competitor is liable to be disqualified at the discretion of the BE steward. In particular it is forbidden for a fence judge or official to call back or assist a competitor by directions, to rectify an error of course.

REPORTING TO DOCTOR (BE Rule 9.2 - Rider Falls and Medical Checks)

A Competitor who has fallen from a Horse must follow the procedure set out below. Failure by a Competitor to ensure compliance with these Rules is likely to incur a disciplinary sanction.

• If he has been examined by an Event Doctor after the fall, he must follow the directions of that doctor. If the doctor has not allowed him to continue on that or any other horse, he must withdraw that horse from the competition and if he has other rides at that event, those horses must also be withdrawn (see Rule 4.9) or other arrangements made;

• If the doctor imposes any conditions before a Competitor may continue on other horses which may have time implications, the Competitor must immediately inform and liaise with the relevant event officials.

• If the Competitor has not been examined by an Event Doctor after the fall, he must not take part in any further phase until he has been examined and allowed to continue.

• Under no circumstances must a Competitor leave the Event site after a fall until he has been examined by an Event Doctor. A Competitor who does so will be automatically medically suspended and must follow the procedure set out in Rule

• It is the responsibility of the Competitor to ensure compliance with these rules. Failure to do so is likely to incur a disciplinary sanction.
