Skipton Horse Trials

Providing a premier setting for the ultimate equestrian challenge

Liz Bower and her volunteer team excel each year in setting a new benchmark for Horse Trials catering.

From the bacon butties, packed lunches & marquee buffets to the afternoon teas, the feedback from guests was amazing. So good in fact that word quickly spread to volunteers and stewards at other events.

Thankfully, despite the demands & pressures of catering for so many and late nights steaming whole salmon and baking cakes, the team are now a permanent fixture!

are always welcome

Help is always needed but if you can't assist over the weekend why not join us in the week before. There is always plenty to do from setting out arenas to painting fences.

Volunteering at Skipton Horse Trials

We take a great deal of pride in how we look after all of our volunteers providing freshly cooked food, drinks, home baking and camping on site. Scroll down for further information on the Cantering Caterers, who are volunteers too. It takes over 120 volunteers each day to ensure that the horse trials run smoothly and without them and you it would be impossible for the event to run.

The youtube clips on this page will give you a better feel for what volunteering is all about and a ride round the 2014 Novice track.

We would love to hear from anyone who wants to get involved in this wonderful sport.
