Our horse show is the largest in Dorset attracting over 1,200 entries over the weekend.  We have 3 dedicated showing rings and use the Main Ring for horse showing on both Saturday and Sunday morning.  We also have a Showjumping Ring that is busy throughout the weekend.  All our rings are maintained to produce the best going possible.

With nearly 130 classes to choose from we hope you will find something to suit your particular equine!  Cash prizes are available in every class with first prizes of £40.

Pony classes take place on Saturday and Horses and Driving on Sunday.  Scurry Racing and Showjumping run on both days.  Horsebox parking is adjacent to the rings and there are loos available in the lorry park.  The official Show photographer is Jay Photos and they are located in the lorry park alongside the refreshments.

You can also find a large range of equestrian related tradestands alongside the showing and showjumping rings.

Stables are available for £42 for one night or £70 for two nights.
