Charity of the Year 2024 at Blair Castle Horse Trials

We are thrilled to have been chosen as Charity of the Year for 2024 by Blair Castle Horse Trials. The international fixture, which runs between 22-25 August 2024 at Blair Castle estate, Atholl, Perthshire, is considered by many as Scotland’s leading equestrian event. Ticket purchasers are being offered the option of making a donation of £4, or more, per ticket, to World Horse Welfare. Tickets are on sale. 

“As supporters of ethical horse sport, long-time attendees at Blair Horse Trials and sponsors of a fence on the cross-country course, we are so pleased to be able to cement this relationship by becoming Charity of the Year. 

“Where horse’s welfare is always put first, equestrian sport such as eventing can be an amazing demonstration of the horse-human partnership. We look forward to seeing examples of this during the event and look forward to working with Blair Castle estates in the run-up.” 

Chief Executive, Roly Owers

“Defender Blair Castle International Horse Trials are pleased to be supporting World Horse Welfare as official event charity in 2024. Their work on promoting responsible equestrian sport is something that we are also passionate about. We are hoping anyone buying tickets will want to support their work – including their Belwade Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Aboyne.”

Nicky Townshend, Atholl Estates

Running over four days (22 – 25 August, 2024), Defender Blair Castle International Horse Trials is Scotland’s premier equestrian event attracting over 45,000 visitors every year, who come to watch top class sport and take advantage of the extensive shopping opportunities. Many of the world’s leading event riders attend, while Blair also hosts lower level international and national competitions, alongside multiple showing and show jumping classes. 

Tickets are available on the event website, with advance booking discounts available.
