There were in hand and ridden classes for both horses and ponies at all levels for adults and children to enjoy.
There was a range of classes, with the in hand classes taking place in the morning, a break for the private driving followed by the ridden classes in the afternoon.
All classes were judged by an experienced show rider who regularly competes at the highest level including both the Royal International Horse Show & The Horse of the Year Show.
The winners of the classes competed for championships, Supreme and a Reserve Supreme of the show at the end of the day. Sashes, rosettes and prize money was awarded to the winners.
The classes were held in grass rings, which would have been watered if required.
The show ground has a mains fed water trough for the horses and a qualified vet was on hand for the duration of the show.
There was a paramedic ambulance on site for the duration of the show.
Below is the 2023 schedule. We expect to have similar classes in 2024 but this is subject to review and consultation.
