There is excitement at Bolesworth in Cheshire today, as 350 riders, including Olympic competitors, return for the Dodson & Horrell Bolesworth International Horse Show until Sunday 12th July 2021.
Today is the first day of the Dodson & Horrell Bolesworth International Horse Show, which will feature hundreds of riders including Olympic hopefuls Holly Smith & Ben Maher for Team GB, Michael Duffy for Ireland, and Christopher Burton for the Australian eventing team.
As one of their final events before embarking on their trip to the Tokyo Games, Ben and Holly will be competing for a share of the impressive £150,000 prize fund at Bolesworth, alongside a truly international lineup of leading combinations from Sweden, America, Germany, and Denmark.
Joining Ben and Holly at Bolesworth and aiming for a spot in Sunday’s highly anticipated Grand Prix final will be household names and crowd favorites John & Michael Whitaker (joined by a number of fellow family members including Jack, Rob & William), alongside a strong Irish contingent led by Daniel Coyle, Richard Howley, Trevor Breen and former Bolesworth Grand Prix winner, Anthony Condon. Among the riders hoping to continue their strong form will be speed specialists and serious competitors Laura Renwick, Guy Williams & Joe Stockdale, who have already posted wins on both the national and international circuit.
