Royal Windsor Horse Show will set new standards in 2017 as it welcomes CSI5* show jumping to the Private Grounds of Windsor Castle. The show jumping will be a highlight of the five-day event which takes place from 10 – 14 May and features top-class equestrian action in four equestrian disciplines and more than 120 showing classes. This year the Show also incorporates some exciting new additions.

The newly upgraded CSI5* show jumping will be a highlight of the Windsor programme as elite international riders take to the Castle Arena to compete for a total prize fund of £520,000. At the pinnacle of the competition will be the inaugural Rolex Grand Prix on Sunday 14 May, with an unprecedented £258,000 in prize money.

Adding to the international standing of the event, the CDI4* Dressage competition has been upgraded from its previous CDI3* status when it last featured in 2015. The Grand Prix and Freestyle to Music will take centre stage during the evening performances on Thursday and Friday respectively and are set to see the top riders battle it out for the enhanced 4* prize.
