The Heartland FM team are spending the weekend at Blair Atholl for this year’s Blair Castle International Horse Trials.
As well as reporting on how the events are going, some of our team are also taking the time to chat to the visitors at the event to see how they feel about one of the biggest sporting events in Highland Perthshire making its return after two years.
“I’m quite excited,” says first-time Blair Castle competitor Helen Marsh. “We’ve come 500 miles from Somerset. We’ve never been here before. It’s absolutely beautiful.”
The event runs from Thursday 26th of August all the way to Sunday, with over 2000 horses and jockeys appearing at the event. Heartland FM will continue to provide coverage of the event, and tickets are still available online at the Box Office.
Listen above, as our very own Elah Cohen catches up with visitors and competitors alike.
Make sure to tune into Heartland FM on Friday, and over the weekend, for more from the Blair Castle International Horse Trials.
