Area Festivals for summer 2022

The Area Festivals offer riders the chance to compete for a dream qualification ticket for the 2023 NAF Five Star BE80 Championship at Bramham and the Voltaire Design Grassroots Championships at Badminton or the prestige of being crowned an area champion.

The next Area Festival takes place at Glamis Castle, Scotland, on 30-31 July 2022 and offers combinations a real championship experience across the parkland, including four cross country courses and an expansive water jump.

Frickley Park in Yorkshire takes place 20-21 August 2022 and offers long arena dressage tests, a fantastic cross country course and reverse order show jumping as the final element.

The final festival takes place at Chillington Hall, Staffordshire, on 10-11 September, providing combinations with an elegant and exciting setting to compete.
