About The Series

The Cotswold Cup has firmly raised the bar for unaffiliated eventing…

Having noticed a huge gap in the unaffiliated eventing market for well-run, quality, friendly events with the highest of safety standards, a group of experienced, enthusiastic, professional event organisers (and eventing super fans) got together and, in 2021 The Cotswold Cup was born.

Every one of our qualifying venues must comply with a strict set of contracted standards, meaning competitors can enter secure in the knowledge that they will be presented with an event run by a friendly and welcoming team, with good ground and the highest standards of both safety and presentation.

Every qualifier will provide the same prize money, in addition to any other prizes they may choose to individually offer.

Our 70cm Series has grown once again for 2024 and you will find qualifiers for our Cirencester Park Finals at 10 events:

Offchurch Bury
Waverton House
Hazleton Manor
Pontispool (1)
Barbury Castle (1)
Waverton House (2)
Barbury Castle (2)
Pontispool (2)

There are 80cm, 90cm and 100cm classes at every qualifying event with a junior section in each.

Welcoming the top tier of competitors from the qualifiers, the 2024 Championships will, once again be run as a three day event (Juniors will compete over two days) at the beautiful Cirencester Park.

Qualification for the prestigious 80, 90 and 100cm Championships is achieved via points accumulation. The same horse and rider combination collects points throughout the season for 1st – 10th placings with double clears also earning you points!

1st – 10th at each 70cm qualifier go forwards to the Championships.​

We have secured a substantial prize pot worth over £17,500 including cash prizes down to 10th place for the Seniors and a whole heap of additional prizes for the Juniors who will also compete for the chance to win a spot on our 2024 Winners’ Day too.

Entries and results will be available on this site in due course. Just follow the prompts when entries are open.

We are still 100% confident that there is nothing at all like this on offer in the UK at the moment and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome you to the 2024 Cotswold Cup Series beginning in March at Offchurch Bury.
