Bolesworth Launches Brand-New Country Lifestyle and Equestrian Show

With an ever-developing line up of music, sports and family lifestyle events, the Bolesworth Estate team are deep in planning for what could be the North West’s most action-packed lifestyle and equestrian event of the year.

Formerly known as the International Horse Show, the ground-breaking five-day event will take place from Wednesday the 14th to Sunday the 18th of June 2023. It will not only showcase the finest world-class and Olympic equestrian talent, but will also embrace a huge raft of innovative enhancements, including country lifestyle artisan and premium retail, celebrity food and drink experiences, live music, children’s activity and experience zones, dog agility events, together with fairground, lake and watersport activities. Away from the hustle and bustle, there’ll be an all-new central garden zone that promises to deliver an entirely tranquil Castle-view experience.

The substantial Lifestyle retail area will encompass country, equestrian and premium shopping. The Family zone will be a hive of action with a packed-out programme of family fun displays and live entertainment. There’ll be improved kids and dog areas together with a scenic dog-friendly walking route, all with the historic Bolesworth Castle as a backdrop.

On the equine front, the Bolesworth International will headline with world-ranking Showjumping and Freestyle Dressage, alongside thrilling spectacles such as Stunt horses, Puissance, Mini Major and the all-action Ride and Drive starring England footballing legend, Michael Owen.

Commenting on the significant investment and all-new event, Bolesworth Managing Director Nina Barbour said;

“The tradition of staging a world-class international horse show is still firmly in the DNA of the event, but we’re at the beginning of a brand-new and dynamic era for Bolesworth that will see the best music, sport, family and lifestyle events take centre-stage. The Horse Show is an event that I’m passionate about and will be taken to another level. We’ve been brave, ripped up the rulebook and I’m confident that we’ll create an event that will set us apart from any other Horse Show in the country.”
