Champagne Evenings at Royal Windsor Horse Show welcome the Puissance and a Dressage Masterclass

The Organisers of Royal Windsor Horse Show have announced a new evening entertainment ticket offer to accompany a further release of General Entry tickets for the sold-out days of 2021 Show (taking place from 1-4 July).

The new Champagne Evenings at Royal Windsor Horse Show programme will see the return of a Puissance competition to the Show on Thursday 1 July, as well as a Dressage Masterclass, adding to the diverse array of equestrian spectacles on display over the course of the four days.

The Puissance, a traditional jumping competition whereby riders tackle an imposing red wall which gets higher in every round jumped, was last seen at Royal Windsor in 2009. On that occasion it was a 20‐year‐old William Whitaker who took the top spot, clearing 7ft aboard Cyber Space. Always a crowd pleaser, the competition will take centre stage in the private grounds of Windsor Castle on the afternoon of Thursday 1 July.

Joining the programme on Thursday will be a new Dressage Masterclass which documents the skills required for horses stepping up to Grand Prix level, the highest level in international Dressage. Presented by British Olympian Richard Davison, the masterclass will not only consider the steps required in training horses to reach this pinnacle, breaking down notoriously challenging movements such as piaffe, one-time-changes and passage, but will also look at how a rider can maximise the points scored during the test itself.

Richard will be joined by Stephen Clarke, the FEI’s highest ranking Dressage judge and a judge at the London 2012 Olympics, to carry out an appraisal of a Grand Prix Dressage test, noting where the horse and rider score their points and tips for where they could pick up a few more marks. The horse and rider combinations performing under Stephen’s watchful eye will be up-and-coming British Grand Prix riders and future Olympic hopefuls looking to cement their status amongst the world’s best.

Show Director, Simon Brooks‐Ward, said,

I am hugely excited to welcome these new additions to Royal Windsor Horse Show for 2021. The Puissance is always great fun and a real crowd pleaser, and the Dressage Masterclass is certain to be extremely enlightening. We are also delighted to be able to offer a new ticket type this year for our evening entertainment – with the show moved back in the calendar, we are looking to encourage visitors to come to the Show and enjoy the long summer evenings.”
