Horse Trials

Dear Competitors, Fans, Volunteers and other Horse Trials Supporters:

The UNH Equine Program has confirmed with university administrators that we will unfortunately NOT be allowed to host our spring USEA Horse Trials, scheduled for April 24-25, 2021, due to ongoing restrictions on campus activities due to the COVID pandemic.

2021 marks the 50th year since the first horse trials was run by UNH, and we remain optimistic that we will be able to welcome the eventing community back to our facility for the fall trials, scheduled for September 25-26, 2021.

In the meantime, please stay tuned for information regarding our second UNH Virtual Dressage Show, to be held later this spring.

To review the latest on UNH's response to the coronavirus pandemic, please visit
