The Defender Shetland Pony Grand National, The Musical Drive of the King’s Troop, and the DAKS Pony Club Mounted Games are not to be missed.

“We are delighted that Horse & Country will be streaming the action from Royal Windsor and are particularly pleased we will be able to include coverage of the Martin Collins Enterprises Frogmore Arena as well as the Castle Arena to share even more of the Royal Windsor experience with those who are unable to attend in person,” said Royal Windsor Show Director Simon Brooks-Ward. “This is a first for Royal Windsor and will bring the show to an even larger online audience.”
