We were honored to be part of such a special Royal Windsor Show

Categories: None | Tags: None

This year the Royal Windsor Horse Show was in its 73rd year and is now a global brand. It is the UK's largest outdoor equestrian event and the only show in the UK to host international competition for dressage, show jumping, driving and endurance riding. 

We are always proud to be part of the show but this year was even more special as it was also host to one of the main celebrations for Her Majesty The Queen's 90th Birthday. The show attracted over 65,000 visitors who were all treated to many spectacular displays from the 1,500 performers and 900 horses. The monarch is well known for her love of horses and was seen beaming as she walked around the grounds. She was joined by several members of her family including husband Prince Philip, her son Prince Edward and grandchildren James Viscount Severn and Lady Louise Windsor.

The Horse Show is held over 4 days but unfortunately a month’s rain in 12 hours caused the first day of the show to be cancelled; the first time that had ever happened in its history. The quick work of the shows organizers had things back on track by day two. The Queen has attended every single year since it began back in 1943 and even competed in it in her younger years as did the Duke of Edinburgh.
