Marquee Hire Northumberland

Best Intent Marquees are pleased to offer marquee hire in Northumberland and one of the wonderful clients we work with is Burgham Horse Trials.

Burgham Horse Trials is the North East’s only international horse trials and is a huge draw for both competitors and spectators. The riders come for the friendly atmosphere and opportunity to compete against some of the country’s top equestrian athletes. Spectators come to see the horses in action, to do some shopping and for a fantastic day out.

So if you’re planning to head to Northumberland for the day what exactly can you expect? Horse and rider compete in three phases; the dressage phase tests obedience and gracefulness, the show jumping phase tests speed and accuracy whilst the cross country requires a fit and brave horse to tackle the solid and challenging fences. Eventing is a thrilling sport to watch; there are no sure fire winners and results can change in a heartbeat with the dropping of a pole or a split second decision on the course.


Of course, it isn’t all about the horses, Burgham provides an excellent opportunity for retail therapy! From Devoucoux saddles to Patey hats and pick and mix sweets to Wingrove Motors – there is something for everyone. Come lunchtime, there is plenty of choice to satisfy the hungriest visitor from the very popular Northumbrian Farmhouse and their selection of burgers (we recommend the lamb!) to Diana Lovegreen’s delicious offerings. For those with a sweet tooth, a crepe stand and fresh donuts await! Head to the bar for a refreshing beverage to wash it all down. Best Intent is delighted to provide the clearspan framed marquee that houses the sponsors’ area, secretary’s tent, bar and kitchen. We also supply the furniture and marquee heating. Best Intent Marquees are big supporters of equestrian events and we are delighted to supply marquees not only for Burgham Horse Trials, but also for Hopetoun International Horse Trials, Floors Castle International Horse Trials, Hendersyde, Dalkeith and Aske.
