CIRENCESTER Park Polo Club is opening its gates to all equestrian fans on Saturday August 13.

The equestrian events on the day feature some of the best riders in the world, from both polo and dressage.

They kick off with a Retraining of Racehorses flatwork demonstration, followed by a breath-taking Olympic level freestyle to music dressage demo, ridden by Cirencester Park’s own Anne Marie Bork-Eppers at 1.00pm.

Both these demos will be compered by Desi Dillingham MBE.

Following the dressage, there will be the final and sub-final of The County Cup high-goal polo tournament played at 2.30pm and 4.00pm.

At half-time join in with treading in the divots and join the crowds after the games to watch the official prize-giving of the magnificent trophy itself.

Throughout the day funds will be being raised for the wonderful charity, ‘Retraining of Racehorses’, British Horseracing’s official charity for the welfare of horses that have retired from racing.

The added bonus is, for this one day only, all ticket holders for the event will receive a complimentary 2022 Cirencester Park Polo Club Social Membership, giving them free access to polo, the members enclosure and facilities, all events and exclusive member-only offers for the rest of the season.

The cost for this is £120 per person, which includes entry to the members enclosure, access to the VIP marquee with a welcome glass of bubbles on arrival and VIP buffet.

You will also get free access to the after-party with DJ Will Harwood and a complimentary social membership pack to Cirencester Park Polo Club, this would all usually be worth £300.

The VIP feast is being provided by Ivy Lodge Bar & Brasserie, the onsite restaurant which is now under the stewardship of chef and hotelier, Ethan Rodgers.

The 43-year-old won his first AA rosette and Bib Gourmand at just 25 and counts The Lucky Onion’s Wheatsheaf in Northleach as one of the prestigious venues he has worked at.

He is encouraging all to take advantage of the Saturday 13 of August, “the weather is looking fab and the club have done a great job in pulling all this together for all to enjoy,” he said. “It is a chance to see the best in equestrian.
