With free entrance, capacity crowds are once again expected to witness showjumping of the very highest standard as South Africa’s best tackle it out on the 1m50 courses. The show will commence on Thursday 9 May, welcoming riders from far and wide across a whole host of show-jumping grades.

VIP hospitality is available from Friday 10 May right through until Sunday, as well as a fantastic kiddies zone with a face painter, balloon twister, jumping castle and more. As if that isn’t enough, Jaryd Smith will perform live at the Reonet Farmers’ Market Village on the show grounds on Saturday and Sunday at approximately 15h30.

Show Director Heather Mpofu says that the competition is set to be thrilling;

“We’re well into the show-jumping season now with horse and rider combinations fit, fresh and gaining momentum which all bodes well for some very tough competition inside the ring. Add to that the passionate and knowledgeable supporters who’ll cheer their favourites on, and we’re set for another fantastic four day event. We welcome everyone with open arms to come and enjoy our beautiful horses and talented riders.”

Everyone is welcome to attend to enjoy free entertainment with quality and competitive show-jumping serving as the backdrop.
