Trade Stands



Belsay Horse Trials has become well known for its fantastic variety of trade stands which range from high-end fashion accessories and jewellery to garden furniture, arts and crafts and specialist food stands, alongside a wide range of equestrian goods.

On average, we receive around 5,000 visitors over the course of the horse trials weekend, all of whom enjoy the shopping experience that Belsay has become known for.

As usual, we will have a concerted campaign of publicity in the run-up to the horse trials via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We will also have PR campaign aimed at local press and TV/radio, as well as some targeted local advertising. If you have any interesting stories, please do get in touch and we will try and promote them.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Belsay Horse Trials is supported by an impressive array of companies who value our event as a fantastic way to reach new customers and raise awareness of their products and services. We can put together specialist packages for our trade stands including fence sponsorship, class sponsorship or sponsorship of prizes. Sponsorship can include programme advertising and website/facebook and twitter advertising campaigns as well as hospitality in our corporate marquee.

Set Up and Break Down

Trade Stands must be erected on or before Friday 2nd June. You will be sent full instructions prior to this and entry will be well signposted. Pitches will be in a pre-ordained plan and you will be shown your spot on arrival. No onsite security will be provided. However, there will be traders staying overnight on site.

All exhibitors/trade stands are responsible for the safety of their own stands and the risk that they may pose to other persons within the allocated space or immediate surrounding areas. They must ensure they have complied with all statutory legislation regarding testing of equipment, training of staff and erection of equipment.

If you wish to dismantle and remove their equipment while the event is still running and there are people moving around, you must take special care that no one is harmed. No exhibitor will be allowed to dismantle his/her stand while show jumping is in progress. These requirements will be monitored by the Health and Safety Steward and the Organiser.

The exhibitors/trade stands are responsible for all product liability in line with their statutory duties under trade description legislation.  Any stands selling or sampling food/drink must be aware of and comply with all food hygiene and safety requirements.

It is recommended by British Eventing that all Trade Stand owners ensure they are covered under their own Third Party insurance for any foreseeable risks.
Break down will be after the close of the event on Sunday 4th June or, by special arrangement with the organisers, on Monday 5th June.
