Swalcliffe Park Horse Trials 2017

Swalcliffe Horse Trials 2017 3Sheldon Bosley Knight were delighted to once again sponsor the Swalcliffe Park Horse Trials near Banbury, Oxfordshire.

The British Eventing Horse Trials ran over two days on the 18th & 19th March 2017, organised by Richard and Sarah Taylor with local, national and international competitors taking part.

The popular event early on in the season had near-perfect going on the cross country course, but the obstacles were causing plenty of questions.

The second day of competition began with the Sheldon Bosley Knight Section H BE100 open class.
