We are thrilled to announce that equine welfare charity, World Horse Welfare have been chosen as our Charity of the Year for 2024. Ticket purchasers are being offered the option of making a donation of £4, or more per ticket, to World Horse Welfare. Tickets are on sale today.
Roly Owers, Chief Executive of World Horse Welfare said “As supporters of ethical horse sport, long-time attendees at Blair Horse Trials and sponsors of a fence on the cross-country course, we are so pleased to be able to cement this relationship by becoming Charity of the Year.
“Where horse’s welfare is always put first, equestrian sport such as eventing can be an amazing demonstration of the horse-human partnership. We look forward to seeing examples of this during the event and look forward to working with Blair Castle estates in the run-up.”
Nicky Townshend from the Horse Trials said “Defender Blair Castle International Horse Trials are delighted to be supporting World Horse Welfare as official event charity in 2024. Their work on promoting responsible equestrian sport is something that we are also passionate about. We are hoping anyone buying tickets will want to support their work – including their Belwade Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Aboyne.”
Tickets are available on the event website, with advance booking discounts available.
