The outstanding event ran last week at Bolesworth Castle on Andrews Bowen Facilities.
Bolesworth International Horse Show was once again a huge success for all last week. Held on the stunning grounds of Bolesworth Castle in the picturesque setting, the show welcomed riders from across the globe to compete in a range of classes.
From international dressage to international showjumping on the same days the surface was prepared by the Andrews Bowen Team for each event at the show. The 2012 surface is a very adaptable surface which proved to be highly capable of catering for each of the different types of riding at the show, inclusive of hunt relays and the very exciting ride & Drive class held in the main arena.
Built in 1826, Bolesworth Castle is situated at the heart of a 6,000-acre dairy farming estate in Cheshire. Nina Barbour’s vision was to create an enviable location to host the highest level of equestrian and sporting events and championships, without compromising the beautiful landscape.
Andrews Bowen helped design the idea for the oval International arena, surrounded by a castle inspired moat. Built to the spec of the 2012 Olympic surface at Greenwich by our team of experts, Bolesworth Castle was transformed into a spectacular venue to host one of the world’s best shows.
‘It’s wonderful, one of the most beautiful facilities I’ve seen for a long time, they’ve done a remarkable job, it’s a world class venue for sure. Nina Barbour has done a tremendous job and she deserves all the success. You could run any event here including a championship.’ Nick Skelton OBE, London 2012 & Rio 2016 Gold medallist.
Following the success of Bolesworth International Horse Shows’ previous years, the show had a need for further arena space to host more classes. From this the Castle Arena was built; 60m x 80m arena built by the Andrews Bowen Team and surfaced with the same as the Main International Arena, our London 2012 mix.
With four all-weather arenas in total, all constructed and surfaced by Andrews Bowen on a stunning estate with an 18th Century Built Castle as a backdrop, Bolesworth Castle is the perfect setting for any event.
