The Barbury International is the only Point-to-Point to draw together riders and horses from the UK and Ireland on a UK Point-to-Point course. Races are also open to licensed trainers provided horses have not run under Rules for 50 days and are qualified with a hunt. And the event stages the second of a series of Point-to-Point Bumpers. It's all designed to encourage the development of young horses in our sport, and promises some hot competition. 

Admission from £8 in advance

Sunday February 10

The Vine & Craven's first race meeting stages 7 races beginning at 1130. There's some archly competitive races to blow away the cobwebs, as well as trade stands to while away the time between races.There's a fair chance you'll bump into one of Wiltshire or Lambourn's many National Hunt trainers, so it's a good place to get a steer on what's hot for the following month's Cheltenham Festival. 

Admission from £10. 

Sunday April 8

The Tedworth concludes the Barbury racing season featuring the £750 Tedworth Gold Cup over 3 3/4 miles in a six race card that provides plenty of opportunity for shopping, children's activities and all the fun of a country fair.
