All good  things  come to  an end !


Regretfully  after  much  soul  searching  we have decided to withdraw the Garratt Horse Trials from our   calendar  of events.. We have had seventeen wonderful years with this event and wish to thank our main sponsor  Garratts  who supported us from the very beginning  ( and  would  continue  to  do  so ) and all our other sponsors and supporters without whom the show could never have been put on .

We progressed with this show from an off site course  and  temporary  jumps  to a  permanently constructed  course at   home  at The Wyke with the acquisition of  extra land  . We have seen many local riders compete here and have enjoyed their successes with them . This was mainly the inspiration of  the late Bob Phillips who had a commitment to put on a Horse Trials to help novices  come into the sport of eventing with the atmosphere and professionalism of an affiliated Horse Trials but without taking that major step too early .

Sadly things do not stay the same for ever . With  Bob's  untimely  death   and with many of our volunteer supporters and officials moving on  we  think   that we have taken this event as far as we can .We feel that as an organisation the time has come to withdraw   this event  from  our   itinerary with all the happy memories that we have of  The Garatt Horse Trials.

We are however looking at implementing other fixtures into our calendar for the future and hope to see you at our  current  and  future events ,
