The organisers of Royal Windsor Horse Show have today confirmed that the CDI Windsor will take place from Thursday 1 to Sunday 4 of July 2021.
After the cancellation of the CDI Keysoe in March due to corona, Windsor will be the first international dressage competition to be held in Great Britain this year. Hartpury (7 - 11 July 2021) will be the next CDI.
Windsor with Audience
“We are looking forward to running a near as normal Show at Windsor in July,” said Show Director, Simon Brooks-Ward. “The start of this year has been difficult for all live events, but recent government announcements have given us the confidence to go full steam ahead with the organising of Royal Windsor, which includes planning for an audience.”
All competition will be carried out with the emphasis being on competitors’ safety and adherence to COVID-19 guidelines required at that time by the local authority, health authorities, veterinary and equestrian associations and the government.
The schedule and a day-by-day programme will go online shortly with the show running as close to its traditional format as possible and including International Jumping, Dressage, the Carriage Driving Grand Prix, Endurance and Showing. The Windsor Pageant, which was scheduled to take place in the evenings, will not take place.
“We are very grateful for the tremendous backing of our supporters which has allowed us to plan with confidence” continued Brooks-Ward. “We are determined to produce one of our best events for the horse world to enjoy, with a competitive and upbeat edition of this 78-year-old horse show.”
