Horse Show 2018

2018 Plymtree Horse Show

We have made a number of changes to the schedule for this year, a link to which can be found at the end of this page.

Important Notice Due to the exceptionally dry ground conditions and with no significant rain being forecast before the date of the show, we have taken the decision, for the safety of horses and riders, to cancel the show jumping classes at this year's show. All other classes will run as scheduled. We are sorry to disappoint our loyal supporters in these classes but safety is paramount. posted 6 August 2018

We are delighted to announce that a number of classes will be qualifiers for the South West Pony Association (SWPA) Championship to be held in 2019, for the Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) 2019 Championship at Aintree and that the first three classes in the showjumping will also be qualifiers for the Conquest Mini Championship.

If you are aiming to qualify in one of the relevant classes, please visit the organisation’s website to read the rules that will apply to the judging of those classes:

www.swpa.co.uk, www.ror.org.uk, www.conquestcentre.org.uk.

Due to circumstances beyond our control there will be no clear round ring or gymkhana event this year and the two working hunter classes have also been dropped for 2018. These decisions will be reviewed for 2019.

However, classes have been added to the showjumping and “in-hand” showing rings.

We are able to use the same excellent site as 2017 and will hold entry fees at last year’s level, so the show represents good value for money. There is no charge for spectator parking and entry to the Plymtree Country Fayre, which starts in the adjacent field at noon, is also free. For those members of the family who may not be as passionate about horses as the competitors, this is an excellent escape! It is also easily accessible for food and drink for all (although, other than entries for the Fancy Dress judging, horses are not allowed in the Country Fayre field).

Our aim with this friendly show is to raise as much money as possible for the Exeter branch of the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA) – all of our net proceeds go to this organisation, which we have supported for the past 40 years.

All entries are on the day, so come along and have a good time!
