International fixture has space for up to 70 trade stands.
This autumn’s Osberton International Horse Trials is to waive admission charges to the public.
The Nottinghamshire three-day event on 29 September to 3 October will instead make a “small” car park charge.
With its venue just 60 miles north up the A1 from Burghley, which was cancelled due to Covid, Osberton should appeal to a shopping-starved audience.
The organisers say they can accommodate up to 70 trade stands, with applications opening this week. They expect in excess of 5,000 visitors.
“We have a full range of stands, both equestrian and non-equestrian,” said Stuart Buntine of Bede Events. “We [also] run a craft and Christmas stall plus food concessions.”
Osberton 2021 offers evening entertainment and on-site camping. Alongside the international eventing, there’s Pony Club show jumping and a carriage driving marathon.
The British Eventing Young Horse Championship runs from the Thursday to Saturday.
