The GB PRE National Championships Show is held at Hartpury Arena at the Hartpury Equestrian College in Gloucestershire.

A huge, international venue with several indoor and outdoor arenas, stabling for in excess of 150 horses and accommodation on the adjacent campus, it’s an ideal host for our annual show which attracts PRE enthusiasts, breeders, handlers and riders of all levels, from across Europe.

Of course with qualifiers for the ANCCE International Championships, there are some classes that are exclusively for pure-bred PREs, but we also welcome part-bred PREs and Portuguese Lusitanos, and have number of classes for each, as well as fun events such as agility and parade. The COPA classes are open to all breeds and are a part qualifier for SICAB.

We welcome competitors that are entering the BD Affiliated Competition to arrive on Wednesday from midday in order to get stabled & settled for the BD classes on Thursday. Those just entering the main GB PRE Championship Show can arrive from midday on Thursday and attend the competitors briefing on Thursday evening.

On Saturday evening we are hosting an arena-side Spanish-themed tapas or paella dinner which will include a meal, wine and will be a great opportunity to socialise and watch the dressage to music and stallion display. Tickets should be purchased in advance, either when entering the show or separately by following the adjacent link. Please book this, as it is subject to numbers.
