The Royal Windsor Horse Show takes place annually each May in the private grounds of Windsor Castle, Berkshire. The show currently hosts international showjumping, dressage, driving and endurance, being awarded CHI status by the FEI, as well as national jumping and showing classes.
Royal Windsor is one of the biggest and most prestigious early summer shows for the showing community, with the hunter classes typically being particularly competitive. Winning the novice hunter class at Royal Windsor signals that a young horse has exciting potential for the future and it is the one of the most coverted prizes at the show.
Being located close to Windsor town means it’s possible to visit the show using public transport, with two train stations to choose from. Windsor & Eton Central Station is about a 10-15min walk from the show’s entrance. It is served by First Great Western trains allowing travel via Slough from London Paddington in the east and from Reading in the west. Windsor & Eton Riverside Station is approximately a 5min walk from the showground and served by South West Trains from London Waterloo in the east and many towns in the south and west via Staines. Alternatively you can travel by car following the signs from juction 6 of the M4, but expect to pay to park.
Whatever mode of transport you choose, dogs should be left at home as they are NOT allowed on the showground.
