Badminton Estate Horse Trials and Events

Badminton Estate is home to some of our favourite Cotswold events including Badminton Horse Trials, taking place from Wednesday 8th to Sunday 12th May 2024. One of the best equestrian sporting events in the world, you can enjoy the international competition kicking off with the horse inspection and the cross country culmination of the Voltaire Design Grassroots Championships.

Continuing on Thursday and Friday with Dressage before the thrills of the Cross Country phase on Saturday. Sunday rounds-off the trials with a Show Jumping test over knock down arena jumps.

If you’re looking for a family day out, Badminton horse trials is open to all, including furry friends! Why not check out our full collection of dog friendly holiday cottages.

If horses aren’t your thing, then you can visit Badminton for any of their other events over the summer months, including live music and creative workshops.

All year-round Badminton Estate offers something for everyone as they have beautiful gardens to explore – the perfect backdrop for a wedding too!

If you’re planning a Cotswold wedding, why not visit during one of their wedding showcases for inspiration for your big day.
