It was a pleasure to attend the NAF International Hartpury Horse Trials this year. The Horse Trials run across the 360-hectare Hartpury campus with the dressage and show jumping taking place in the International Arena and the cross country phase running across Hartpury House Bank. The Trials have become hugely popular with riders from across the world and have put the Forest of Dean on the international equine map.
This is a credit to the fantastic organizational ability of the team at Hartpury. Many local students study at Hartpury University and Hartpury College and I have had the pleasure of meeting them on my previous visits. Hartpury is also a big local employer within the constituency.
I am featured in this video with Hartpury University and Hartpury College Vice-Chancellor, Principal and CEO, Russell Marchant. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in studying Agriculture, Equine Management, Land Management, Sport or A-levels to look at what is on offer at Hartpury.
