Heart of the Highlands

Land Rover Blair Castle International Horse Trials
Invite you to be part of the ‘Heart of the Highlands’ Shopping Area at this year’s event running 25-28 August 2022.

If you’ve landed on this page, it’s because we’re interested in having you be a part of our new Heart of the Highlands shopping area at the Blair Castle Horse Trials this year!

Blair Castle Horse Trials has been running since 1977 and became an International Event in 1989. We have a large and dedicated following of both Equine and Country Lifestyle enthusiasts. The event runs over four days, 25 – 28 August and offers a broad range of equine competitions including international eventing at seven levels including the Scottish Grassroots Championships up to CCI4*, showing, British Showjumping and Pony Club Mounted Games. There is something for everyone in the family to enjoy and makes a great family holiday! 

The shopping village is an integral part of the event and there are stalls of all varieties. As part of our venue redesign last year, we introduced the NEW ‘Heart of the Highlands’ shopping area. This was home to our small and most importantly local community businesses! This gives us the opportunity to use our established event, with a large following and broad reach, to aid local businesses to expand their visibility across the country.

For the first year, while we worked to establish this new destination shopping area at Blair Horse Trials, single stands are a 3m X 3m booth (on grass) and a number of double stand slots will be available. The fee includes camping on-site (at no additional cost other than a hook-up if required) and two wristbands/one car pass. Power may be available on your stand at an additional rate, please inquire if you think you will be interested in power. As part of our attempt to be as Covid-safe as possible, we will be operating a cash-free site – so wifi will be available for a basic connection at no additional cost to you.
