The Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show was 'Highly Commended' in the category 'Event of the Year' at the 2018 Marketing Cheshire Awards.
At the glittering awards dinner held last week, the Marketing Cheshire team praised the quality of the visitor experience and the continued investment in the show by the organisers, Bolesworth Events LLP.
The show, an annual event and now in its 11th year, takes place on the Bolesworth Estate Showground with the iconic Bolesworth Castle as the backdrop. This year, the show welcomed over 30,000 visitors to Cheshire, not only increasing visitors to the region but showcasing Cheshire to the global equestrian community.
Drawing some of the world's finest equestrian sportsmen and women, the 4 days of competition includes world class dressage, show jumping and the more than entertaining feature classes such as the Bentley Ride and Drive and the Mini Major.
Against a backdrop of equestrian highlights, the show includes a fabulous shopping village, a range of dining options and a prestigious hospitality experience.
Also featured in the 2018 show was a Networking Business Lunch, encouraging local businesses to experience a world class equestrian event and to see the venue hire options that Bolesworth Estate has to offer.
Congratulating her team, Show Director, Nina Barbour, commented 'It is a testament to the efforts of our entire team that we have been Highly Commended against tough competition. At Bolesworth, we strive to deliver only the very best for our visitors and I am delighted that our efforts have been recognised by the wider local community.'
The award was accepted by Mrs Diana Barbour.
