British Eventing’s long established Poplar Park Horse Trials, now in its 4oth year of running looks forward to welcoming you to our event. We are very excited to be kicking off the new eventing season on the weekend of the 2nd-3rd March 2024. We are the only British Eventing affiliated venue in Suffolk. Profits from this year’s event will go to The East Anglian Air Ambulance and The Riding for the Disabled Woodbridge & District Group.

Great family day out ... dogs welcome ... food and clothing stalls onsite. Watch all the thrills and spills of competitors tackling 'Eventing', the ultimate challenge for horse and rider ... the precision and harmony of dressage, the skill and accuracy of showjumping and the bravery and boldness of cross country.

Over 40 years the reputation of the event and its cross-country course, planned and designed by Burghley course builder Joe Weller, continues to grow. Some of the world's top combinations are in attendance including Olympic team Gold and individual silver medallist, Tom McEwen with the beautiful Toledo de Kerser.  Olympic team gold medallist Oliver Townend is making the trip to Suffolk with a string of horses including his much-loved Olympic partner and Burghley horse trials winner Ballaghmor Class.  Sarah Bullimore who won both individual silver and team bronze at the European Championships makes the trip with her pint-sized homebred gelding Corouet. Household name and one of only two equestrians to ever win the Rolex Grand Slam, Pippa Funnell will also be bringing a selection of her horses to compete. And local girl Bubby Upton the current reigning under25 champion will start with a number of horses including her Burghley partner Cola III.
