Equestrian at The Wayland Show

This year sees a totally refreshed schedule for this year’s Wayland Show held on August 2nd 2015, near Watton, Norfolk.

While the Wayland Show will maintain its reputation in the calendar as an event for keen and competitive amateurs, its ever increasing entries has meant introducing some new and exciting classes.

Qualifiers are introduced for the new Ridden Arabian Showing Series, the QUEST series for Gypsy Cobs, and first round qualifiers for Senior Showing and Dressage for our older competitors. As well as its traditional showing classes, the show will also hold for the first time new ridden and in-hand classes for rescued horses, and with two of the largest rehoming charities based locally, there are more and more prospective competitors.

New, and unique at least in the East, is the EQ Inter-team Relay.

This has been specially designed for teams of three to go head to head against the clock on a mirror image course. A real test of horsemanship, the course will include jumping a ditch, crossing a bridge, a walk and halt section as well as a hunting gate that will have to be opened and closed. With £500 of prize money on offer, this unique event  will attract teams, it is hoped, from every equestrian discipline.

And to make sure that the excitement does not end there, the British Scurry and Trials Driving are competing for the Wayland Scurry Trials Champion for 2015. Preliminary qualifying rounds will held all day, with the final in the main ring.

Don’t forget that your entries will go towards raising money for local causes, and so not only will riders have a really great day but will also be helping someone in need.

Schedules are now available from the Secretary or at www.waylandshow.com.
