If you wish to increase the number of nights a horse is stabled once the initial stable booking is made, please contact the Show Secretary on 07790 309424 to amend your booking. Prices and conditions can be found on the schedule and online.

Should space be available, late stabling requests made to the Show Secretary after Monday 3 August may be accepted, however, they will be subject to an additional fee of £5 per stable per night.
