HORSE SHOW COMPETITORS

Plan to compete at North America’s #1 Indoor Horse Show

After another successful year in 2023, our horse show team is hard at work planning for our 102nd Royal Horse Show this November 1st – 10th.  With new competition offerings and a move back to a CSI5*-W, this year’s show is sure to be another iconic event. Showcasing the ‘best of the best’ in over thirty breeds and divisions, we will crown more Canadian champions than any other event.  Whether you’re a fierce competitor, or simply a lover of horses, The Royal Horse Show has something for all. Start planning your Road to the Royal now!

ROYAL HORSE SHOW 2024 COMPETITION UPDATE

In the interest of providing national championship competitions which are relevant and foster the growth of equestrian sport across Canada, the following changes will be implemented at the 2024 Royal Horse Show:

The Pony Jumper Division will be removed from the 2024 Royal Horse Show schedule.  No other competitions will be inserted in its place at this time.  The Royal Horse Show Committee will review this decision at the completion of the 2024 Horse Show.  There is opportunity for this division to return should its relevance and participation increase nationally.

Due to low participation in the National Championship U25 division, The Royal Horse Show will be revising how they offer championship level competition for Canadian U25 athletes. As this is an EC program, The Royal will be working with the Jumping Committee to ensure opportunities are available for as many athletes as possible. More details will follow in the first quarter of 2024. 

Due to the increased interest in hunter divisions from Western athletes, the quota of qualified entries will be increased to three (3) in 2024.  If one or more of the three positions are not fulfilled, the next qualified entry from the National Rankings will be selected. All other current regional quotas will remain the same.
