Equifest, the UK’s largest amateur horse show returns to the East of England Arena and Events Centre for the 15th year between 19th – 21st August, 2021.
After missing a year due to the pandemic the three-day festival is perfect for all horse lovers and will include a wide range of showing classes, spectacular evening shows, and the same amazing atmosphere for which Equifest has become renowned.
Betsy Branyan, organiser of the show explains, “Equifest remains one of the most popular horse shows in the country and we are thrilled to be back. This year it will feature a variety of showing, show jumping, working hunter and carriage driving classes. Evening performances will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings – making use of the large outdoor arena and the covered grandstand seating for the first time.”
Branyan concluded, “Equifest has built up an avid and loyal following over the last 15 years, and is now the largest amateur horse show in the UK. We’ve achieved this by creating an event that combines competitive riding and showing with a festival atmosphere and a rich variety of traders. Riders come from all over the country to meet, learn, compete, and enjoy themselves at the three-day festival.”
“The return of Equifest to the East of England Arena is another major event in the calendar making a return and another signal that the events industry is open for business, it’s great to welcome the show back to the venue,” said Jason Lunn, venue director at the East of England Arena.
