What we are doing now
Hello and thank you for visiting our website!
We are feeling pretty positive about being able to run a show on 2nd August, this will be dependent on any changes to Government guidelines and our landowner & Judges also being comfortable. We are busy planning what this may look like and we will update you in a few weeks with more info. We think at the moment we would restrict to 6 entries per class for showing, look to do pre-entires and pay by card on the day. We probably wont hold a championship as we couldn't then restrict this and it would mean competitors staying on the showground for longer than required.
We are now collecting in all Annual Show and Presentation evening trophies, if you could arrange for these to be dropped off with one of our committee members please!
The showground is in Swillington which has lovely flat showing rings, a large showing jumping arena, plenty of parking and a separate SJ and showing warm up area. Our 2020 schedule is also available to download on our Schedule page.

Where we began and what we are about
We are a small friendly local show established in 1976. We currently hold five events a year between May and September, the August show being a fundraiser for local charities.There is something for everyone at our shows from a new beginner to the more advanced rider. We have in-hand and ridden classes as well as show jumping, Lead Rein and Novice classes. Each show has an in-hand and ridden championship split across Juniors and Seniors. Our Annual Show, held in September, is sponsored by various local businesses and the winner of each class is presented with a perpetual trophy and the highest placed member receives a prize too! Our members accrue points over the course of the season and the rider* with the most points per class at the end of the year is also presented with a perpetual trophy. On our website you will find our schedule, membership forms and pre entry forms however if there is anything else you would like or if you have any questions please contact us and we will be more than happy to help.
*please note that points are accrued as a rider and horse combination. If you would like any further details please see our rules page or ask a member of the committee.
