Including Volunteers (The Organisers' Organiser!)

Over the last few years there have been a good number of changes at Skipton Horse Trials including new organisers, site layout and cross country course. Further developments are continuing in order to ensure that we can provide a thrilling day out for competitors, horses and spectators alike.

2014 was our Silver Anniversary (25 years!), an amazing achievement for an event which relies on over 120 volunteers a day to make it happen.

Skipton Horse Trials could not run without the kind permission of Mr & Mrs John Howard of Funkirk Farm or the generous support of all our sponsors. A huge thanks also goes to an amazing team of volunteers who year after year give up their time to ensure that things run as smoothly as possible; without them the horse trials could not happen.




I love Skipton, it's a great event with a good atmosphere and is perfect for my young horses.

It's been really lucky for me so I keep coming back. I would recommend it for riders wanting to educate their horses and run on good going.
