Fixture list is announced as Barbury prepares for International on Sunday December 13

Welcome to Barbury Races

Barbury will restart its racing season,  starting this December with the unique Barbury International fixture, pitting the best of Irish horses and riders against their British counterparts for the only time on a UK Point-to-Point course in the season. We hope you'll be able to attend as a spectator or to compete. If you're a first time visitor, be assured of a warm welcome, and check out our FAQs for basics and directions. We hope the Corona virus will be a long distant memory by then.

The International is the first of three fixtures this winter and spring, as the season gathers momentum into the traditional start period in February. The Vine & Craven fixture in February and Tedworth on April 11th both celebrate the best and most competitive racing of this amateur division in the spectacular surroundings of the Barbury Estate. 

Barbury is home to top flight equestrian sport at every level. Home to top Jumps trainer Alan King, and within hailing distance of his namesake Neil King at Burderop and Emma Lavelle at Ogbourne St George,Barbury Racecourse is at the centre of a renaissance of Jumps success in north Wiltshire, in which Pointing plays a central part. 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 International Meeting to the Tedworth in April, this is a venue where you can enjoy breath-taking scenery, very fresh air, archly competitive racing and great company with like-minded horsemen from across Wiltshire and surrounding counties. 

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.
