Floors Castle International Horse Trials

Friday 10th - Sunday 12th May

Visit the Floors Castle International Horse Trials for a wonderful family day out.

Be treated to an array of equestrian spectacles, with the very best in dressage, show jumping and cross country - all running simultaneously throughout the day.

Take a walk around the cross country course, which spans from the Golden Gates in Kelso down to the River Tweed and along to the parkland just south of the playground and Walled Garden.

Enjoy a spot of retail therapy at the shopping village and lay out your picnic blanket to watch the events unfold whilst enjoying our delicious food and drink offering. Various catering options will be on hand throughout the weekend with something for all, from freshly made crepes to pizzas.

Why not visit the Terrace Café for a homemade dine-in lunch or afternoon tea prepared by the Duke & Duchess of Roxburghe’s talented chefs? Or, pop over to the Courtyard Café, conveniently located next to the Castle for freshly prepared paninis, soups and ice-cream!

On Saturday and Sunday, there will be lots of family entertainment including a bouncy castle, merry go round, sand pit, and tractor rides. There will be a face painter in attendance too.

Tickets are just £10 per person and children under 16 are free. Free Parking.
Please note: There is a separate cost for the bouncy castle, merry go round and face painter.

The castle and gardens will be open as normal during the event (standard Castle & Grounds entrance fees apply), however, please be aware that estate road restrictions will be in place. Full information will be given on entry.
