MESSAGE FROM THE ORGANISERS:
Following Government guidelines announced on Monday 16 March 2020, stating that mass gatherings will not be supported by emergency services and recent announcements regarding social distancing, it is with enormous regret that we have reluctantly taken the decision to cancel Royal Windsor Horse Show, Royal Windsor Endurance and The Edwardian Pageant. The health of the competitors, tradestand holders, sponsors, officials, volunteers and visiting public is our top priority. We would like to thank everyone associated with the event for their continued support, and we are already planning a bumper show in 2021 to compensate for this year’s disappointment.”
All individuals who have already purchased a ticket will receive a refund from The Ticket Factory in due course. All competitors who have already paid for their entry will receive a refund, including any stabling fees in due course.
