Spectators are welcome to watch the 2011 SPILLERS® Trailblazers® Championships at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, on 22 July to 7 August.

Admission is free to these national finals, now in their eleventh year. Spectators can enjoy ringside viewing, a selection of trade stands, catering outlets and all-day action on Stoneleigh’s massive all-weather arena.

The championships feature show jumping, dressage, showing and combined training, the latter being new for 2011. This year also sees the first senior show jumping finals in the 65cm, 1.10m and 1.15m categories and special classes for ex-racehorses, sponsored by Retraining of Racehorses (RoR).

Highlights include the judging of the Trailblazers working hunter championships, part of the showing series, on grass in the former Royal Show main arena.

The SPILLERS® Trailblazers® Championships are the culmination of Trailblazers’ annual competition series, sponsored by South Essex Insurance Brokers (SEIB) and comprising first and second rounds at 60-plus approved centres nationwide.

Other Trailblazers championships sponsors are showing discipline sponsor Rosettes Direct and the British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA). Trailblazers has recently welcomed Pfizer as a new sponsor for show jumping.
