The showground boasts six spacious, grass equine rings as well as a Main Arena which host over 290 equine classes, receiving over 2,750 entries from many of the country’s top competitors. The show also hosts over 50 prestigious Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) qualifiers each year. There are all manner of classes from in-hand showing through to working hunter and ridden maxi cobs to keep you entertained. The driving classes in the Cotswold Ring, working horses in the Hereford Ring, spectacular show jumping in the Worcester Ring, and heavy horse displays in the Main Arena are real highlights. You can also stock up on equine essentials from the quality, specialist trade stands within the new Royal Parade shopping area in the Equine Village, located between the stables and the Main Arena. Seating and refreshments will also be available here so you can watch the judging in style.
Over the course of the show, many of the best horses and ponies from across the UK, along with their junior and senior riders and handlers, will be competing to be crowned champion. With over 50 Horse of the Year Show qualifiers, the classes will be fiercely contested.
