“It has constructed up a immense society that has loved and celebrated The Competition each and every occasion. I wish to thank everybody who has been concerned over the life 4 a long time; our sponsors for his or her positive aid, the immense collection of industry stands and area leisure and our spectators who’ve cherished coming to Gatcombe to observe the world-class equestrian game from the well-known Soil Bowl.”

Peter’s father and event chairman, Captain Mark Phillips, 75, added: “The pony trials at Gatcombe and extra not too long ago the Competition of British Eventing had been a big a part of my generation for over 40 years when The Princess Royal and I first had the dream.
