Past Events & Roll of Honour

The History of Horse Trials at Blair Castle.
Blair has run three-day events since 1989, beginning with a National (CCN) two-star, then adding an International (CCI) two-star in 1991. In 1998, the event ran both a CCI* and CCI** for the first time, and in 2003 moved up a level to run CCI*** alongside the existing CCI*. 2006 was another year of change, as the CCI** was reintroduced to run alongside the three- and one-star competitions, making Blair the only event in Britain to run CCI*, CCI** and CCI*** events concurrently. In 2009, the event took on yet another challenge, running two sections of CCI* due to huge entries and introducing a CIC*** as well – a very busy year indeed! Blair Castle has a strong history of running European Championships, having hosted the FEI European Junior Championships in 1996, and the FEI European Young Rider Eventing Championships in both 2007 and 2011. Most recently, the event has hosted the senior FEI European Eventing Championship in 2015. From 2016 we are proud host of the Event Rider Masters series, being the final of the 2018’s edition. Blair is Scotland’s only three-star three-day event, and one of only 3 such events in Britain (the others being Blenheim and Bramham). Listed below are previous winners at Blair.
