The RNAA is very pleased to announce we will be hosting a one-day Equestrian Show at the Norfolk Showground on Wednesday 28 July 2021.  Classes will be mostly In Hand and Ridden Light Horses, with a few additional classes for Heavy Horses, Private Driving and the Double Harness Scurry competition.

Many of the usual Royal Norfolk Show HOYS qualifiers including The Price Family In Hand Supreme Champion, have been retained so a great opportunity for exhibitors to qualify for the Horse of the Year Show, NEC, 6-10 October 2021.

Although there will be no Showjumping or Farrier Competition on this occasion, it is hoped that this streamlined version of the equestrian elements of the annual Royal Norfolk Show will be a stepping stone to allow us to come back with a full Royal Show in 2022 (Wednesday 29 & Thursday 30 June 2022).
