Belvoir Castle Engine Yard Jousting and Polo Event 23

The fields surrounding Belvoir Castle in Lincolnshire were filled with the sights and sounds of more than 40 horses and their riders in full flow for the first ever Festival of the Horse taking place across an action-packed weekend on 11-12 September 2021.

Charlotte Whalley, Belvoir Castle head of events said:

“For our first year of hosting Festival of the Horse, we are delighted with how the weekend went and found it to be a huge success. We have learnt a lot and had great feedback from our visitors. We can’t wait to hold an even bigger and better event next year with many more stalls, performers and delicious food outlets to choose from.”

“Thank you to our exceptional performers: Her Majesty’s Household Cavalry, Knights of Nottingham, the Dzhigitovka International Cossacks, UK Polocrosse Association and the Tentpegging riders for putting on a magnificent show!”.
