At a time when the sport of eventing has lost so many competitions, it’s fantastic to see a once-extinct event be reborn like a phoenix rising from the ashes and then watch it soar over the next couple years at it grows and evolves. Essex Horse Trials has done just that, making a comeback in 2017 after last holding the event in 1998.
This year seems extra special, as the event is being held in a unique format where cross country takes place at the usual Moorland Farm, but dressage and show jumping took place at Gladstone — a.k.a. the historic Hamilton Farm, home to the USET Foundation Headquarters. Yesterday, Gladstone welcomed event riders back into its rings for the first time sine 1996 and today everyone will head over to Moorland Farms to finish out the competition with the cross country.
