Redwings’ annual show offers something for everyone with classes for all ages and abilities. Whether you’re competing at your first event, looking to try your hoof at jumping or wanting to show what a rescued pony can achieve when given a second chance, this is the show for you.

Indeed, the charity hopes the rescue class will be as popular as ever at this year’s show and welcomes rescued ponies from any charity to take part. Redwings also wants to give horses from every walk of life the chance to take part, so there are classes for retired racehorses, veterans and foreign breeds; not forgetting our affiliated Donkey Breed Society classes too.

After the introduction of their heavy horse classes last year, the charity is hoping for even more entries this year and to provide a real sense of competition for beautiful Shires, Suffolk Punches, Clydesdales, Percherons and more. These classes were a real highlight of last year’s show for entrants and spectators alike, so the charity are eagerly anticipating a fantastic and varied heavy horse turnout!

Redwings Show organiser Stacey Harvey said:

“Last year’s show was our most successful one to date, and a super day was had by all. We are hoping to replicate that once again this year by providing the opportunity for riders and horses of all ages and abilities to come along and give showing a go in a relaxed and friendly environment. We are also really excited to be holding our heavy horse classes once again and hope to see some magnificent heavies this year”.
