Our equestrian competitions

From shire horses to working hunter ponies, the equine events have always played an important role in the Lincolnshire Show. Over the years the showjumping competitions, scurry classes and heavy horse turnouts have proved a popular attraction in the Main Ring.

This year we are delighted to welcome new sections into our equine schedule including In-Hand Suffolk Horses, In-Hand Ex-Racehorses and Ridden Heavy Horses.
