New venue for Royal Windsor Horse Show
28th October 2004

After 62 years, The Royal Windsor Horse Show, with the support of The Queen, is planning to move from its current public location into the Private Grounds of Windsor Castle.

In previous years the show has shared its grounds with various sports users in the Home Park Public. The move, across the road, means that the show will have a dedicated site.

Normally, the beautiful Parkland is strictly off limits to members of the Public but for four days next May (12th to 15th May 2005), all will be allowed access to one of the most picturesque locations in the country.

Royal Windsor is already one of the most prestigious equestrian and social events in the spring and summer sporting calendar and the move will enhance its national and international reputation.

Additionally, the organisers have submitted a planning application for an All-Weather Surface for a Main Arena of 120m x 60m. Added to the unique site and the impressive view of Windsor Castle, it is intended that an All Weather Surface would make this the most sought after equestrian event in the country. It is hoped, that if permission is granted, the surface would be laid in time for the 2005 event.
