Entries to Brigstock International Horse Trials in Rockingham, Market Harborough, Leicestershire, England had already exceeded all expectation, but the icing on the cake for the organisers has
been a late entry by Zara Phillips for the Advanced Intermediate, the one class without a waiting list.
Zara joins the Who’s Who of the sport already expected. Not just a member of the Royal Family, Zara is a past World Champion, European Champion and London 2012 Team Silver medallist. She will be bringing two horses to Rockingham Castle, Black Tuxedo and her top horse, London 2012 ride High Kingdom.
The Advanced Intermediate is one of the classes where riders can attempt to win a £7,500 hand made British watch, crafted and awarded by Stamford-based Robert Loomes Watches. The lucky winner will be the rider who finishes the cross country closest to the optimum time – and with Robert Loomes the Official Timekeeper there will be no margin for error on the part of the riders.
Horse Trials gates open at 9am daily and close at 5pm.
