Last call for Royal Norfolk Show entries

The Royal Norfolk Show which takes place on June 26 and 27 has issued a final call for entries into the equine section.

With over 100 classes across a wide range of breeds, the equine section is one of the most admired at the Royal Norfolk Show.

Last year's event attracted more than 1,142 equine entries from across the UK, with a further 332 entering the showjumping section.

This year's showjumping circuit uses one of the 15 fences that showcased the themes of UK culture, London's heritage and landmarks, and the history of Greenwich at the 2012 Olympics. In addition, the course itself is designed and built by a member of the Olympic course building team, Kelvin Bywater.

Ann Kent, Bvet Med Cert EP MRCVS, is a specialist vet who attended London 2012 and is also on hand to ensure the equestrian events are injury free.

Showjumping competitions take place on both days and new events this year include the 1.25m Open Competition, Emma Easton Memorial Perpetual Cup. The deadline for entries is May 31.

Former British racehorse trainer and author, Jenny Pitman heads up a wealth of judging experience at this year's Royal Norfolk Show and is joined by James Van Praagh, Bridget Millington, Daniel Park and Mrs A J C Campbell.
