Home » News » World-Class

The 2016 Bolesworth CSI **** International drew to a close on Sunday following an action-packed programme of world-class equestrian sport.

Rising Dutch showjumping star Michel Hendrix won the headline Grand Prix, while memories were also made by appearances from the likes of British Olympic stars Nick Skelton, Ben Maher, Scott Brash, Charlotte Dujardin, Carl Hester and Laura Tomlinson.
And show president Nina Barbour has extended her thanks and appreciation to all concerned following what were, at times, testing conditions after torrential rainfall hit the show site at Bolesworth Castle.Addressing riders, spectators, sponsors, traders and friends of Bolesworth.

Nina said: "Four days of truly world-class International showjumping finished on Sunday evening at the Bolesworth International. The week had started with unprecedented rainfall on the evening of Wednesday, June 15, which resulted in temporary flash flooding of the event site. Firstly, I would like to extend my thanks to the whole team at Bolesworth who worked tirelessly round the clock, primarily to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the 800 horses on site, which throughout the week has been our absolute priority at all times. But secondly, I would like to thank all involved with our incredible event, and the support and understanding they gave us throughout the five days."
