The prestigious show features participants from around the world in 4 competitions. These include Carriage Driving (Landrover International Driving Grand Prix), Show Jumping (CSI1* and CSI4*), Endurance (CEI1*) and National Dressage. There will be over 120 showing classes and outstanding equestrian displays that make this the British equestrian event of the year. HM The Queen, who is also patron to Royal Windsor, has attended the Royal Windsor Horse Show (RWHS) each year since the event began in 1944.
