This year is the 125th Ashbourne Show. In order to accommodate the many and various celebrations and displays we have planned for this, we have had to make some changes to the show rings in the Light Horse Field. These changes are for this year only. The Horse of the Year Show Ridden Hunter classes, which usually take place in the main ring first thing in the morning will be held in Ring 2. This gives our local rider classes the chance to take centre stage in the Main Ring and these are scheduled to start at 10.30 a.m. having been preceded by ridden Mountain and Moorland classes.
We are delighted to be holding a Royal International Horse Show qualifier for Ladies Hunter’s again and this class will now take place in Ring 2, directly after the Ridden Hunters. For the first time this year we are holding a class for Riding Club Horses (under Sports Horse Breeding (GB) rules) ridden by a member of a British Riding Club who is also classed as an amateur under SHB(GB) rules. We hope this class is well supported and, hopefully, it will bring new competitors along to the show.
We are very grateful to be sharing our 125th show with several long standing sponsors and we would like to pass on our thanks and appreciation to The Eques-Train, Pool House Equine, Uttoxeter Racecourse, Arbormasters, I-Quip, Sophie Knight and Shaws Equestrian. If anyone would like details of any of our sponsors, please look for their adverts in the show guide or contact the Light Horse Secretary.
The show could not, of course, take place without our competitors and our volunteers. Your support is very much appreciated. If you have any comments or suggestions for the show, or if you would like to know how you can get involved in the future, either as a sponsor or by helping out, please get in touch – we would be delighted to hear from you. .
Please Note - Passports for all animals MUST be available for inspection and random checks will be made throughout the day.
