The second annual Osborne Horse Trials has been cancelled, it has been confirmed.
“It is extremely disappointing for the entire team involved to have to make the decision to cancel. The event at Osborne House last year provided a unique opportunity for eventing enthusiasts on the Isle of Wight. Huge amounts of work go into planning and organising an event, and organisers do not make the decision to cancel lightly”.
“We are absolutely devastated to have to take this decision. We have been working hard to ensure that this year’s event built on the success of last year’s. The Isle of Wight community had really embraced the event and we are very sad that we are not able to bring the sport back to Osborne this year. Unfortunately, it is not possible to continue if we do not have a field of competitors.”
” The loss of such a wonderful sporting event for the Island is hugely disappointing, we will work hard to encourage riders back to Osborne Horse Trials in 2020.”
“We can confirm that this year’s Osborne Horse Trials has been cancelled by organiser Bede Events due to lack of entries from competitors. We are sorry to disappoint visitors who were planning to come to Osborne for the event, it was exciting for the island to have top level equestrian sport here. Ticket holders should contact Bede Events to arrange for a full refund.”
