Frequently Asked Questions

What to do Now!
You just need to enter to reserve your stable.  We created a show that is ideal for people that don't often stay away at Horse Shows.  We have ample toilets and showers, exceptional catering at very reasonable catering prices and parties each night (Covid-19 Restrictions Permitting).  Electric hook up is also available for those that prefer their creature comforts.

How do I know if I will be good enough?
These shows are meant for people like you.  Our "Welcome To Jumping" classes are designed to encourage younger children and adults that are just starting their journey, or perhaps just finding their confidence after a bit of a break.  We suggest finding someone (perhaps on our Facebook Group) that has already come to the centre and they will tell you that you can be sure that we cater for individuals of all standards. Most people found that, whether you win or not, it really is a great weekend of fun.


It seems a long way to travel.
We are only 10 minutes from the Severn Bridge, which is now free to cross, with main roads leading virtually right up to the entrance.  The Show has been designed for people like you to come and stay over. Why not team up with people from your livery yards or that live near and share a lorry and ask to be stabled next to each other?

What do we need to do when we get there?
On arrival to the Showground, please park where you are asked to park.  Then, check in with the Stable Manager, who will show you to your stable. Your stable number is not the same as your running numbers.  Once you have unloaded and set up your "camp", if there is still time why not take your horse or pony for a walk around our showground to get used to all the sights before the competitions the following day.
