    Notes for Editors

    The first International Horse Trials was held at Houghton Hall in 2007

    The box office is open with prices starting at 7 per adult, 4 per child. Full details on how to book, and the provisional timetable are available on www.houghtoninternational.co.uk

    Houghton Hall is located in stunning parkland, half a mile off the A148 King's Lynn to Fakenham road, approximately 13 miles east of King's Lynn and 10 miles west of Fakenham.

    New for 2013, the venue will also host Norfolk's Festival of Showing and British Showjumping classes.

    The sport of Eventing is the ultimate test of a horse and rider and can be likened to Triathlon. There are 3 different phases to the competition, dressage, cross country and show jumping, in which each horse and rider take part. Eventing is the only Olympic sport where men and women compete on completely equal terms

    Interviews and photo opportunities can be arranged. For all further details and information on The Houghton International please contact:
