British Eventing’s long-established Poplar Park Horse Trials, will give attendees the chance to see some of the world's best talents, including gold medal Olympians, in Suffolk next month.

Now in its 38th year of running, the trials will kick off the eventing season on March 5 and 6 near Hollesley.

As well as hosting a highly-anticipated sporting event, it will be providing important financial support for local charities.

Profits from this year’s event will go to the East Anglian Air Ambulance and Riding for the Disabled Woodbridge & District Group.

People will be able to watch all the thrills and spills of competitors tackling eventing, which is a combination of dressage, showjumping, and cross country.

In order to win, horses and riders need to master the precision and harmony of dressage, the skill and accuracy of showjumping, and the bravery and boldness of cross country.

Attending the event will be some of the world's top combinations including Olympic team gold and individual silver medallist, Tom McEwen.

Olympic team gold medallist Oliver Townend is also making the trip to Suffolk with a string of horses including his much loved Olympic partner and Burghley Horse Trials winner Ballaghmor Class.
