Both the champion and reserve horses in the HOYS Shire Horse Championship qualifiers will go through to the Horse of the Year Show at Wembley in October.
Many qualifiers have been lost thisyear due to cancellation of shows in FMD restricted areas and the organisers have decided to accept reserve champion horses to ensure numbers are maintained at the final.
Qualifying classes will be held at:
- Royal Lancashire on 27-29 July
Heckington on 28 July
Devon County on 9-11 August
Essex Heavy Horse Show on 19 August
Edenbridge and Oxted on 26-27 August
Royal Cornwall on 13-15 September
Tickets are on sale now via the box office (tel: 0870 121 0125 or 020 8795 9595) or for more information visit www.hoys.co.uk
