Royal Windsor Horse Show Introduces 32 New Showing Classes; Entries go online from 4th March

Organisers of Royal Windsor Horse Show (12 – 16 May) are introducing 32 new Showing classes for 2010, making the Show one of the biggest Showing events in the UK. The timetable for Royal Windsor is now available online at www.rwhs.co.uk with entries going live online and by post for all classes, including Jumping from 4th March.

A range of classes from Sport Horses to Veterans to Miniature Horses and Side-Saddle have been added, enhancing the Show’s prestigious reputation as a show for competitors and horse lovers. (Full list below). Royal Windsor Horse Show now boasts over 150 classes, 117 of those in Showing, with an additional 20 Showing Championships.

Event director Simon Brooks-Ward said: “We are responding to the growing popularity of Showing by providing classes that have become increasingly popular. We have listened to experts and re-engaged the Orsicch Committee to advise us. I am pleased to announce that it will include Nigel Hollings and Carol Gilbert-Scott. They will keep us abreast of the latest Showing trends to ensure we are at the forefront of the Showing world.”

Now the timetable has been confirmed, for the second year running Royal Windsor Horse Show entries can be completed online. Last year’s pilot was a tremendous success, with over 45% of entries being made this way. This year, as before, competitors will be able to enter and pay for most classes held at Royal Windsor, as well as book stabling, organise passes and book additional tickets.
