Musto at Gatcombe Park Festival of British Eventing
The Gloucestershire home of HRH The Princess Royal hosts over 40,000 visitors during the week’s competition, which also features the Shetland Pony Grand National, as well as the Musical Kur (dressage to music) and displays by the Royal Agricultural Beagles and the Duke of Beaufort Hounds.
The most exciting addition for the 2012 event is the special parade of Team GB riders on Sunday 15 July.
The quintet of Kristina Cook, William Fox-Pitt, Piggy French, Mary King and Zara Phillips will parade in the main arena on Sunday afternoon at 2.00pm in one of the Queen’s State Range Rovers, with kind permission of Her Majesty the Queen.
This will be the fourth time that such a parade has taken place before an Olympic Games and it will be an extra special occasion this year with Zara on home turf.
Festival Director Tim Henson said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for people to see the selected riders, wish them the very best of luck and give them a special Gatcombe send-off.”
