Horse & Pony Sections

We are pleased to be continuing with several new initiatives and classes that were introduced last year, including:

- a Supreme Champion on both days with a £250 prize

- Heavy Horse classes

- Coaching Marathon

- Local classes

- Unaffiliated classes

- In-Hand Hack & Riding Horse classes with £75 awarded to the Champion Riding Pony in Hand

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.


Show Jumping

2016 saw a prize fund exceeding £5,900 and a brand new Stick & Twist Competition which took place for the first time in the UK. This year we're delighted to be continuing with this competition as well as the Six Bar and the grand final of the Jumping on Grass series.
