“With just 100 days to go the team at Blair Castle are ready to welcome all competitors, visitors and volunteers to one of the most prestigious equestrian events in this year’s eventing calendar,” said

Alec Lochore, Event Director.  “We have been building up to this landmark date and are incredibly lucky to be working with some fantastic sponsors and event partners, who like us, are looking forward to the months ahead and the final preparations for this major championship in September.  It will be a privilege to welcome some of the best riders in Europe who will assemble at Blair Castle to contend for the top honour of Individual and Team European Champions.”
