Great Meadow International will have an entirely new feel this year in The Plains, Virginia. In addition to a new date of Aug. 22-25, Great Meadow is also adding a CCI3*-S and CCI2*-S alongside the feature CCI4*-S class, with a total of 200 horses expected to compete.
With two new cross country courses to build, Great Meadow is offering early incentive pricing on all tailgating packages through May 1 for what is promised to be a revamped event focused on providing the best possible experience for spectators.
For starters, Great Meadow is now dog-friendly. Leashed dogs are welcome at the event for the first time this year, and dog cooling stations and treat samples will be readily available. A variety of dog demonstrations and “canine-friendly programming” will also take place throughout the weekend.
General admission weekend tickets cost $20 and can be purchased online here. There are a variety of other ticket options available, such as a reserved ringside box. Located right on the arena fence, the ringside box ticket package also includes two weekend general admission car passes and reserved seating for six people.
If you’re interested in tailgating during cross country on Sunday, you can choose from three different locations: Fleming Hill, Fleming Arena or Swan Lake. All tailgating packages also include six general general admission weekend tickets. Click here to view tailgating options.
For those wanting access to the Patrons Marquee, hospitality packages include seating for Thursday morning dressage; a buffet lunch and hors d’oeuvre reception on Friday; breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday; and brunch on Sunday. Click here to view hospitality package options.
