Everybody is welcome. From horses to ponies, veterans to youngstock, experienced to novice, there is something for all of you. If you have been before, then we look forward to seeing you again this year. If it your first time, then please come along and find out what makes Rampton Horse Show one of the friendliest, local Shows in the eastern region.
The Show has a relaxed, family atmosphere with plenty of good-natured competition. Classes can be entered in advance or on the day, so if you arrive and fancy your chances at some additional classes then it is easily done. There’s plenty of parking on the site for trailers and horseboxes, and refreshments are available all day including some excellent coffee and bacon butties! There’s also a show photographer on hand to catch your sporting moments.
