New International showjumping event announced

1st May 2015

Bolesworth International is delighted to announce a prestigious new British event for the International showjumping calendar.

Hailed as "a unique new international show" by Bolesworth founder and organiser Nina Barbour, the three-star competition will run at the Liverpool Echo Arena from January 1-3, 2016.

A New Year's Eve party at the Albert Dock venue will provide the perfect launch as Bolesworth International makes another impressive entry in its equestrian portfolio and that of British equestrian sport.

"We are excited to be launching a unique new international show, having secured dates at the Liverpool Echo Arena, one of the premier indoor city venues in this country," Nina Barbour said.

“Liverpool is a dynamic city, and we plan to embrace the city's culture, celebrities and performers within each performance.”

"The New Year's Eve party will provide a spectacular launch, followed by three days of world-class competition and unique acts, with afternoon and evening performances each day.”

It is another example of Nina's vision for showjumping in this country, with Liverpool taking centre-stage just six months after the Bolesworth International in Cheshire, which this year will run at four-star level for the first time. The event will include the usual Bolesworth standard of hospitality, with private boxes on sale soon, and a shopping village surrounding the International warm-up arena.

Confirmed entries at Bolesworth Castle from June 18-21 include brilliant young American rider Jessica Springsteen, London 2012 Great Britain team gold medallist Nick Skelton and last year's Bolesworth Redrow Grand Prix champion William Whitaker.

World-class showjumping apart, Bolesworth 2015 will also include a puissance, freestyle dressage competition and an eventers' grand prix, in addition to pop concerts, extensive shopping facilities and numerous family attractions.
