Last year we unfortunately lost the wonderful Royal Windsor Horse Show owing to the coronavirus pandemic. But thankfully this year, it is back and between 1 and 4 July, we will be treated to a horsey bonanza.

A variety of tickets are available prior to the show, details of which can be found below.
The show is action-packed and visitors will be have the option to to watch leading international showjumping riders competing in the CSI5* classes, top level showing, driving and endurance competition and so much more. You can also watch the DAKS Pony Club mounted games, the Shetland Pony Grand National, the mounted band of the Household Cavalry and the musical ride of the Household Cavalry mounted regiment and the musical drive of the King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery will run throughout each day of the show too.
