We are delighted to announce that the 2023 Box Office is now open.

Defender Blair Castle International Horse Trials offers four days of both world class and grassroots sporting action, fabulous shopping and entertainment for all the family to enjoy, set against a backdrop of the picture postcard 13th century Blair Castle, home of the Atholl family for over seven centuries.

Multiple ticket options are available, ranging from £35 up to £165 for a Season membership. Membership tickets include a forward car parking pass and access to the ringside Members’ Marquee with its bar, restaurant, ringside garden and members toilet facilities. Children 12 years and under do not require their own badge, and dogs are welcome if on a short lead and well behaved.

Weekend memberships cover Saturday and Sunday, and Season Membership all four days of the event. Thursday and Friday memberships are also available – early booking, through the Box Office on our website, is advised; these tickets sell out fast.

Alternatively, there are General Admission tickets, many of which offer discounts when bought in advance. Prices start at just £18 a day with parking an additional £7. Again, children 12 and under are admitted free of charge when accompanying a paying adult, and well-behaved dogs are welcome.

Camping is always a popular option, with various sizes of pitch available to book – full details of all ticket options are HERE.

Assistant Event Director for the Horse Trials, Nicky Townshend, says: “Work is well underway to make 2023 a fabulous event for all concerned – spectators, owners, competitors, trade stand holders, sponsors and volunteers. Defender Blair Castle International always attracts many of the world’s best equestrian athletes, and countless visitors come year-in, year-out, making for a very special and happy few days. Huge thanks to our title sponsor Land Rover for its ongoing support.”
