Showing Judges Announced for HOYS 2021

Team Commercial News

It is with great anticipation that we announce the showing judges for Horse of the Year Show 2021.  With the qualifiers due to start in spring of the new year, planning is well underway for a show suitable and safe for the times that we are in.  HOYS 2021 will take place from Wednesday 6th – Sunday 10th October.

As we look forward to HOYS 2021 our number one priority remains to be the health and safety of all those that come together to make HOYS happen; it is our intention for the ride judges of horse classes to fulfil their customary appointment at the Championship.  This will be dependent on the environment at the time of the show as we remain committed to our responsibility to continue to support the efforts to tackle this challenge to our everyday lives.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the judges’ for their co-operation and understanding throughout this period.

We hope that many competitors are looking forward to supporting the qualifiers (Showing qualifier announcement coming soon) for the upcoming season, and we look forward to welcoming you back to Horse of the Year Show.
