Talented young show jumpers are invited to enter an X Factor style competition at this year’s Countryside Live event, which takes place in Harrogate on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 October.

International showjumper and 2012 Olympic reserve Tina Fletcher and husband Graham, will be in the judges’ hot seat at this popular event

Organised by the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, Countryside Live, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, attracts thousands of visitors from across the country with classes for cattle, sheep and horses, demonstrations of rural skills and country crafts.

One of the most popular events is the Search for a Talented Show Jumper competition, introduced three years ago.
Aimed at young show jumpers aged 10 and above, riders are put through their paces over the weekend, with the final taking place at 4pm on the final day.

The closing date for entries is Monday 8 October. As well as a cash prize, there’s also the chance to win a day with the Fletchers at their Oxfordshire yard.
