HORSE SHOWING

There are in hand and ridden classes for both horses and ponies at all levels for adults and children to enjoy.
We have 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.
This show is affiliated to Equine Sports UK (ESUK) Grassroots Championships taking place at Arena UK, Grantham, Lincolnshire on the 25th-27th July 2024. The three highest placed exhibits will qualify in each class
We are pleased to confirm that all classes will be judged by an experienced show rider who regularly competes at the highest level including the Royal International Horse Show & The Horse of the Year Show.
The winners of the classes compete for championships and there is a Supreme and a Reserve Supreme of the show at the end of the day, sashes, and prize money for the winners.
This year will also see the return of trophies!
The classes are in grass rings, which will be watered if required. The will be a qualified vet on hand for the duration of the show.
We hope these classes will be supported by both our previous competitors and hopefully new ones too.
