Come and join us at Thoresby Hall for a weekend of equestrian sport and classic cars at the Eventing Spring Carnival.
Thoresby Hall is one of Nottinghamshire’s grandest houses. Designed in 1864 by Anthony Salvin, architect of the day, it sits majestically on the edge of historic Sherwood Forest.
Horsepower at Thoresby showcases some of the finest four-legged equestrian athletes as they go head-to-head over three days of eventing. Held at the beginning of the 2023 eventing calendar, Thoresby sees some of the biggest names in British eventing compete.
Set within 1,000 acres of unspoilt English countryside and classic parkland, there will be ample display parking for some of the best four wheels on the roads today. Horsepower at Thoresby is a combination of the best cars and finest horses all in one place.
