It's your chance to see Horse of the Year Show qualifiers – and the Queen's horses.

The show offers a superb spectacle of horses competing in a range of classes. The show will be hosting 31 Horse of the Year Show qualifier events, and there will be more than 200 classes across all categories and over 1,600 horses will be competing in any of our six competition rings.

Amateur and professional riders will be competing for a range of qualifiers and prizes – and the Queen's horses will be competing too! Her horses Tower Bridge, Sparkler, Donation and Lancer are all being ridden by Katie Jerram.

In the Grand Ring, look out for top-level showjumping, exciting scurry driving and heavy horse turnouts from all four heavy breeds. Percheron, Clydesdale, Suffolk and Shire.
