Royal Windsor Horse Show Gears up for Landmark Year
Date Posted: 16/04/13
The Royal Windsor Horse Show will be celebrating its 70th year when the 2013 event takes place next month, and is sure to provide a fantastic day out for anyone staying in London hotels.
Running from May 8th to 12th on the grounds of Windsor Castle, the show will feature some 3,000 horses and ponies as they take part in a number of showing, jumping and international carriage driving competitions.
A truly historic event in the British cultural calendar, the show was inaugurated in 1943 to help raise funds for the war effort, and is patronised by the Queen who has been in attendance at every single Royal Windsor Horse Show since.
Entrance is free and visitors will also be treated to the Shetland Pony Grand National as well as a number of military equestrian displays, including the Musical Drive of the Kings Troop Royal Horse Artillery.
