Stabling Regulations

There is plenty of stabling available on the Showground.

Up to date Influenza Vaccination Certificates are required for all horses competing at the event this year.  Copies of the Certificate must be submitted with entry, ideally by uploading it whilst making the entry, or by email or by post to the Entries Secretary.

The Royal Welsh Showground are insisting that we enforce inspection of Certificates rigorously this year so be aware that your entry will not be accepted without a Certificate that is current for the duration of the event. The Showground has reserved the right to undertake spot checks themselves.  Competitors will be asked to remove their horse from the venue immediately if found to have an inadequate Certificate.  The decision of the Organisers and / or the Showground will be final.

Any horse competing over 80km (GER or CER) on Saturday which is then to compete again on Sunday over any distance must stable at the venue in the interests of their well-being.

Two bales of straw will be provided on a self-service basis.  There will be a limited supply of additional straw available at a cost of £3 per bale.  If you wish to use an alternative type of bedding then please bring your own.  The stables are of block or wooden construction, 9’ 6” x 9’ 6”.  Stallion boxes are available which, if required, should be requested in the comments box on the entry form.


The stable block will be open from Thursday 3rd October from 14.00 onwards and will close at 10.00am on Monday 7th October.  Please also note that the stables in the covered barn are reserved for the exclusive use of the Home International Teams this year.


All stabling must be booked in advance with your entry.  Stabling charges are shown under Entry Fees. A Stable Card will be issued in the ride information pack and must be displayed on the stable door at all times with the contact details of the person responsible for the horse.  The number of nights booked will be monitored and additional charges made if necessary.


Day Corralling Cards will also be issues in your ride information pack or can be obtained from the Ride Office on arrival should you wish to corral your horse during the day.  Please ensure that you adhere to the Corralling Regulations if you wish to corral your horse near to your lorry or trailer during the day.


Please make sure that stabling and corral cards are protected against wet weather.


Note that lighting is NOT available in the stables, so please bring a torch.


Vehicles will not be allowed anywhere in the fenced stable area.  Please leave your vehicle in the car park above the stable area and walk down to your stable.  Thank you for your cooperation in helping to ensure that the stable area is as safe as possible for you, your horse, other people and their horses.


It is not necessary to muck out your stable on leaving.  Please do not deposit waste from your stable in the litter bins.
