Thursday June 20, 2019

Thursday sees the first day of competition in the International Arena, and this year, for the first time ever, there's free general admission entry to the showground. With more than 150 tradestands in the Charles Owen Shopping Village, we want you to come along and check out the fabulous shopping for yourselves!

The feature class of the day is the coveted Bunn Leisure Derby Tankard, when the year's hopefuls embark on their final Derby preparations. Riders will be hoping to familiarise their mounts with the International Arena, and will be aware of the momentous Derby Bank looming in the background...

A selection of young horse championships will take place in the morning and are an excellent chance to scope out the equine stars of the future. Finally, for visitors with a keen sartorial eye, the hugely popular Driving Concours D'Elegance returns. While the drivers may look the epitome of calm elegance, do not be fooled - competition is fierce!

Please note: Times are subject to change.

Timetables will be updated in early 2019.
