Royal Windsor Horse Show unveils new schedule

  • Schedules for Royal Windsor Horse Show (10-13 May 2007) are now available. The show, which takes place in the private gardens and parkland of Windsor Castle, offers top show jumping and showing classes, as well as the Land Rover Carriage Driving Grand Prix.

    New for 2007 will be Britain’s only outdoor puissance on Saturday evening (12 May) and a dressage grand prix freestyle on Friday evening (11 May).

    The organisers of Royal Windsor have endeavoured to make competitors’ lives easier at this year’s show. The stables have been moved closer to the show rings. “It will be quicker and slicker,” said a spokesperson for the show. Both overnight and day boxes will occupy a site behind the Frogmore Ring.

    Meanwhile the funfair will be situated further from the show rings than in previous years to ensure horses are not distracted by the lights and noise.

    In addition to the vast array of show jumping, showing and driving, spectators will enjoy top class polo and dressage displays. The Food and Drink Festival is back for a second year and there will be more than 200 shops, restaurants and bars.

    “The show, after two years, seems to have really found its true home in the private grounds of Windsor Castle,” said show director, Simon Brooks-Ward. “We’ve received so much positive feedback and continue to strive to make changes that will enhance the experience for both competitors and visitors.”

    Entries close on 23 March. Schedules and entry forms can be downloaded from the website at www.rwhs.co.uk
