We have a new venue!
We are delighted to announce that we have been invited to relocate our event at Dalkeith Country Estate, Edinburgh.
Organiser of Central Scotland Horse Trials, James Oakden says, “This is a very exciting opportunity and we are thrilled to have secured the use of these fabulous grounds, which offer excellent access. We very much look forward to building a long term relationship with the Estate and making this venture a success, for both Central Scotland Horse Trials and Dalkeith Country Estate.
“I would like to thank our many supporters for their patience whilst we have been working hard behind the scenes to secure this venue. Due to the weather, time and financial constraints we are looking to develop the site this year so that we are ready to start eventing in the 2014 British Eventing calendar.”
The committee are planning to run a number of fundraising events during 2013, including a hunter trials, to assist in financing the move.

Shock as Horse Trials try and find a new venue for 2013
We are saddened to report that the news that Scone Palace can no longer accommodate Central Scotland Horse Trials is true.
Organiser James Oakden says "The committee are really surprised and disappointed to have been given notice that Scone Palace are no longer willing to accommodate Central Scotland Horse Trials. It is devastating to the British Evening calendar to loose two fixtures at such a fantastic venue. We are actively seeking an alternative site for 2013 so that we can continue to run this iconic event."
"We are really grateful to Scone Palace for their hospitality over 22 years. The committee are aware of the loss of business to the local community and would like to find an alternative central venue to enable us to continue this event."
"We hope that competitors and sponsors will continue to support us when we find a new site. We look forward to continuing our innovative approach to running a top class international event" added James.
Please contact James Oakden on jamesoakden05@ aol.com if you can help with a potential new venue within Central Scotland.
CSHT cancelled on 11 and 12 August 2012
James Oakden the organiser of Central Scotland Horse Trials has, in discussion with British Eventing, very reluctantly taken the decision to cancel the event planned for 11th & 12th August due to ground damage in the park.
We are however pleased to announce that the organiser of Eglinton Horse Trials the Hon. Heather Galbraith has very kindly agreed to reschedule the event that was abandoned this weekend, 6th & 7th July, and to run a replacement fixture on 11th & 12th August.
Further details and the full schedule will follow however Eglinton hope to schedule all those classes that were due to run at Central Scotland which will include the Scottish Novice and Intermediate Championships (Added 6 July)

A huge thank you to everyone who made today possible
On behalf of the committee and all the competitors, we would like to extend a very special thank you to the army of volunteers who gave up their time on 4 May to allow the event to run.

NEW! UNOFFICIAL RIDING CLUB TEAM COMPETITION ON SUNDAY 12 AUGUST
Painting party part 2 - Wednesday 18 April, 2pm till dark!
Finishing touches to the final fences
A fun-filled day for all the family - free entry for spectators
Painting party pals do us proud
We'd like to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who turned up to paint. Thanks to everyone's hard work, all 13 new fences have been painted - and don't they look fab?! It's amazing how a bit of paint has transformed the pile of boring brown fences into eyecatching jumps each with their own identity.
Without the help of such willing, enthusiastic - and slightly paint-splattered - volunteers it would be impossible to run these events, so thanks again guys. (Added 5 March)
