The competition at Osborne is a much shorter and fast-paced competition compared to traditional horse trials. This starts with a shorter dressage test which approximately 4 minutes. Once all horses have completed the dressage, showjumping will follow. This will again be a slightly shorter course, offering riders the chance to choose alternative jumps and various routes. The Cross Country competition will conclude the day of trials, with classes running in reverse order with leaders going last.

This format will allow spectators to follow the competition through all phases and watch every rider they wish to throughout the day. Starting at around 9.30am, the competition will close by around 4pm. There will be one class each day, with competitors riding a horse per day.

The dressage and show jumping will be located on the Durbar Lawn. The cross country starts and finished on the lawn, it runs down the valley towards the Solent, then heads up towards Swiss Cottage, looping back across the road with the final few fences located in front of the house.

The course this year, has been straightened out and offers some really good flat galloping areas that were not used in 2018. Excellent viewing is offered in many places, but those on the terraces will enjoy the whole day with a birds-eye view of the action.
