Royal Windsor Horse Show
Windsor Home Park hosts some of the most spectacular family entertainment the equestrian world has to offer. The Royal Windsor Horse Show features showjumping, a gymkhana, carriage driving and more, all in front of the magnificent backdrop of Windsor Castle.
The show began in 1943 when two pioneering spirits, Count Robert Orssich and Mr Geoffrey Cross, organised the Horse and Dog Show to raise money for the war effort. Royal patronage has been a feature of the show since its inception and the Queen has even taken part in the carriage-driving classes.
