Barbury once again played host to four fixtures, including the most valuable fixture in the UK calendar - the Barbury International, but sadly the action has moved on as the season gets into its final stages and warm Spring weather takes hold. We hope you were able to attend as a spectator or to compete.
We'll be back in the autumn with news of next season's fixtures, but for those visitors who didn't know about Wiltshire's most competitive racecourse, read on.
Barbury Castle Estate is home to top flight equestrian sport at every level. Barbury Racecourse stages four Point-to-Point meetings each season, and of course, the estate plays host to Barbury Horse Trials in July. Truly, this is a setting where excellence can flourish across multiple equine disciplines.
The natural amphitheatre that surrounds the racecourse offers superb viewing of the entire course, easy access to the paddock and winner’s enclosure, and excellent racing ground on our chalky soil to bring out the best in any thoroughbred. From the opening Vine & Craven Meeting to the Tedworth in April, this is a venue where you can enjoy breath-taking scenery, very fresh air, archly competitive racing and the only international Point-to-Point fixture in the UK.
And with easy access via the motorway network, Barbury’s appeal as a racing venue stretches far and wide as our International fixture illustrates.
Check the fixtures and programme here, or take advantage of our advance booking to reserve your ticket. Meantime, we look forward to welcoming you to this wonderful venue, and to helping you get the best from your racing.
Revisit us in September for next season’s fixtures
