WORLD, Olympic and county riders will compete in horse trials at an Olympic training ground.

Nurstead Court, in Meopham, a Grade I-listed manor, is due to host the eventing competition on Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 6pm.

There will be trade stalls at the venue which was selected last month as the equestrian Olympic training base for the south-east in the 2012 London Olympics.

Event co-ordinator Ginny Walliker said: "It is an opportunity for people in this area to come and see some of the best eventing riders in the world.

"The whole point is to bring eventing to Kent. When I started in 2003 there was nothing like this but it has progressed well and this is now our sixth competition.

It is such a beautiful setting. it will be a great day for all the family to come and picnic and see top riders."

There are a number of cash prizes each day for eventing which involves dressage, showjumping and cross country.

Entrance for the day is £5 for cars and free if you are on foot.
