Belton International Horse Trials, 29 - 31st March 2019

Words and Photos by Julian Portch

I always enjoy my Birthday weekend, as it’s normally spent at Belton and this year was no exception. All of the International Classes were fiercely fought for by the competitors. Two of the 3* sections and the 4* section were decided by 0.5 points or less. Tom McEwen had a good weekend with two International wins. The other two 3* sections were won by Bubby Upton and Kitty King.
