Dogs are most welcome at Hartpury. However, they must be kept under control and on a short lead at all times (extending leads are not permitted). Take care in busy areas so as not to inconvenience other visitors, exhibitors and competitors. We also respectfully ask all visitors to clean up after their dog and place any waste in bins provided. 

Please do not leave dogs unattended in vehicles. Hartpury reserves the right to arrange removal of dogs from vehicles by the RSPCA/Police, should it be necessary.

A limited number of electrical hook-ups are available and are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Please book a hook-up along with your entry/stable bookings.

We offer an excellent selection of bar and catering facilities on site.

Please note that several additional pop-up catering facilities may also be available, and the opening times of the above catering outlets will vary.

An FEI Veterinary Officer will be on-site each day during the Hartpury Festival of Dressage and International Hartpury Horse Trials to provide emergency veterinary assistance.
