The quiz, called EQuestrian of Sport, is in aid of Brooke, Action For Working Horses And Donkeys, who have been named as the chosen charity for the event that runs from 27 September to 1 October. 

The quiz, sponsored by Investec, will take place on evening of Friday 29 September and Brooke’s Patron and newsreader Alastair Stewart will be playing host. Brooke will receive proceeds from this event, which will help fund its work helping vulnerable horses and donkeys.

Along with the quiz, Brooke also have a series of other exciting things at Osberton to celebrate being their chosen charity, including a 'Brooke Brush' fence at number 22 in the 2* class and a special 'Me and My Horse' stand on Saturday and Sunday, which will provide equestrian enthusiasts with a new way of celebrating the bond between people and their horses.

There will also be a Brooke stand throughout the event and can be found at stand 54. 

Osberton will see over 9000 equestrian enthusiasts flock to the Osberton Estate in Worksop, Nottinghamshire, for five days of dressage, cross country and showjumping as well as a whole host of other attractions. 

Osberton International Horse Trials is the 4th largest three-day event in the world. It's particularly famous for the KBIS Young Horse Championships where attendees regularly get a chance to see future Olympic and Championship Event horses strut their stuff. 

Petra Ingram, Brooke’s Chief Executive, said: “We’re delighted to have been chosen as Osberton’s chosen charity. It’s a packed five days that as well as the usual eventing activities, will have displays from Britain’s working shire horses and carriage driving horses, and they’re a constant reminder of how much the U.K. once relied on horses and donkeys for agriculture and transport.

"We’re looking forward to meeting visitors at our stand and sharing stories about how these animals are still supporting people’s lives across the globe, and how Brooke is improving welfare standards for working equines in the developing world.”
