For visitors (inlcuding grooms/helpers travelling separately) arriving with us in cars Munstead Horse Trials will charge £5 for cars with single occupants and £10 for cars with multiple occupants. If you are inviting friends to come and watch you compete please make sure that they are aware of the car park charges.


We love to see all animals however please can we ask that all dogs to be kept on short leads whilst at the showground, I am sure you understand why! Please also pick up after them and use the bins provided to dispose of bags.


Please take away all litter (or use the bins provided) - horseboxes/ trailers are not to be mucked out at the showground. We also ask that all plaiting bands are taken home with you - the fields are used for grazing and we wouldn't want our cherished steeds hoovering up any disgarded bands/ litter.....
