About Avon Vale Races
The Avon Vale Point-to-Point was first established in the 1920s and subject to weather conditions has run almost every year since then. For spectators it's always been a great day out to enjoy the countryside and this unique atmosphere and the excitement of a highly competitive sporting event.
Situated in the spectacular setting of Larkhill Racecourse on Salisbury Plain, home to more race meetings than any other Pointing venue, the Avon Vale aims to provide the best possible experience for horse, rider and spectator alike at what is considered to be one of the best point-to-point courses in the country,
Before settling at Larkhill, Avon Vale Point-to-Point ran on its own racecourses up until 1960, the most recent of which was in the 1950s at Monkton Farleigh. Prior to that we shared a course with the Beaufort at Didmarton and afterwards at Nedge sharing with the Mendip. More recently we ran at Barbury, again sharing the course with multiple other race meetings.
