In 2010, Skipton saddled up with the local area’s biggest equestrian and rural social event - the Skipton Building Society Horse Trials.
The event not only features exhilarating sport with some of the biggest names from Britain’s equestrian scene, but is also an enjoyable social event, right at the gateway to the stunning Yorkshire Dales.
The Horse Trials take place over two weekends each year, in June and August. They feature cross country, show jumping and dressage, as well as plenty of visitor attractions; with quality trade stands, delicious food and a licensed bar, together with the thrills of the adrenaline pumping sport.
David Cutter, Group Chief Executive of Skipton Building Society, said:
"Skipton is delighted to support this huge local event. Not only is eventing a fantastic sport to follow, but the two-day horse trials provide a great day out for the entire family. It’s good to see our financial support helping to provide this kind of entertainment for local people, as well as boosting the local economy by attracting visitors to the Dales from all over the UK."
