Pudleston Horse and Pony Show has taken place for many years at the end of Summer in rural Worcestershire, near Tenbury Wells. With an emphasis on welcoming participants of all abilities, the event has seen increased numbers of entries every year but continues to focus on providing a supportive and enjoyable environment for competitors of all abilities to come along and take part with classes to suit all tastes and standards.
Events range from beginners show jumping; classes for the most adorable pony; dog with the waggiest tail, etc., up to the large show jumping and dressage classes with marvellous trophies for the victors and the much coveted showing class, with a prize donated by Anja Potze Fine Jewellery of Worcester.
One of the competitors at the first shows was Rosie Thomas who has since gone on to great success as an International Three Day Eventer for GB. Rosie and her family are still heavily involved in the organisation of the show and Rosie has designed and built the show jumping for the past few years and will do so again this year. Jumping classes start with clear round jumping and small fences and classes continue throughout the day concluding with prestigious classes where the prizes include some beautiful trophies.
For riders wishing to keep their (and their steeds) feet on the ground there are many dressage and showing classes. Showing classes suit many different types of horse and pony as well as there being classes for dogs. For the youngest riders there are Pony and Rider Fancy Dress, Handy Pony and Gymkhana competitions. Details of the many classes can be seen by hitting the Schedules link on the homepage.
Proceeds from the show go to support our chosen charity Cure Leukaemia and the local Pudleston Church (whose supporters run a stall selling home made sandwiches and cakes which are worth the visit alone!).
The show is held in beautiful surroundings with glorious views across the Teme Valley and is a wonderful place to spend one of the last Sunday's of the Summer.
Please come and visit us, we promise you a warm welcome and are confident you will return.
