Cross-country day is here! And William Fox-Pitt can’t wait to get started!

Hartpury is basking in glorious sunshine as we gear up for the pinnacle of the NAF Five Star Hartpury International Horse Trials – cross-country day!

We caught up with three day eventing superstar William Fox-Pitt this morning after his three tests in the NAF Superflex CIC*** in preparation for the cross-country phase today.

He said: “The course looks magnificent. We all got very wet yesterday but it was worth it!

“Hartpury is a popular event and this is reflected in the huge number of entries. A tremendous amount of work has been done preparing the ground and with the rain, the going should be near ‘perfect’.”

William has three horses in the CIC3* – Bay My Hero (currently in first place), Fernhill Pimms and Luxury FH.

Entry today and tomorrow is only £10 per person and free for Under-16s. Do come and see us!

Plus there’s live scoring on the website and you can get all the latest news and results on twitter @HartpuryHT and on the NAF Five Star Hartpury International Horse
