A huge thank you must go to everyone who made Norton Disney Horse Trials the place to BE!!! Friendly, organised, amazing ground, fantastic fair but testing XC. Huge warm-ups for both SJ & Dressage, and to top it all you could buy anything you needed for your good steed from a Bloomfields horsebox to a new saddle cloth from the renowned Tiggas Saddlery. Feeling very lucky this is in Lincolnshire, roll on 2016.”

“Thank you so much for holding such a fabulous event at Norton Disney. It was our first event, and we were made to feel so welcome.”

Norton Disney Horse Trials is a well-established and superbly presented British Eventing (BE) Horse Trials held twice-yearly in Lincolnshire, April and October. The event is renowned for its beautifully crafted fences and excellent year-round ground.

This family-run organisation team is heavily boosted by the huge talent that is Georgie Fowle of Addoastra. The course is designed and built by Joe, Ali is involved in all elements and their children Jack, Emma, Teya and Isobel are hands-on volunteers as part of this family team.

Offering the best going for horses and riders is always a priority for Joe. With a year-round land management program and course foundations of loame, sand and gravel which provide excellent drainage, the event is able to run in all weathers and usually offers hoof-perfect conditions. The track offers a variety of permanent, portable and hand-carved fences including combinations (with alternatives at the more difficult fences) and a beautiful water complex, all with the quality stamp of Joe Weller.

JoeWellerND (19)A full range of classes are offered from BE 80cm to BE Novice (1.10m), incorporating the Mitsubishi Grass Roots 100cm Regional Final & U18 Qualifier.

Norton Disney is notable for its friendly atmosphere and helpful volunteers, from Stewards and Fence Judges to Scorers and Supporters.


With a large, centrally-located lorry park on flat ground, its dressage area, show-jumping arena and cross-country course in close proximity, big warm-up areas and excellent views across the whole cross-country course, the event is both competitor- and spectator- friendly.


Offering excellent shopping and a wide range of food and drink in beautiful countryside, Norton Disney Horse Trials is an excellent day out for the whole family. All are very welcome.
