See below for the full Show Day schedule, so you can plan your visit and make sure you don't miss out on your favourites.

Please note: - timings are approximate and may be subject to change on the day.

Shires Classes

09:30 - 12:30  |  Main Ring

Shire horses have been part of our rural heritage since the 17th century. Direct descendants of the great battle horses of late medieval times, they were used as draught horses in farming and industry for over 300 years and are still the most recognisable breed of British horse.

The Alrewas Show is proud to support the Shire Horse Society in its efforts to support and preserve these magnificent horses.

A first for the Alrewas Show for 2019, we're proud to host this round of the National Pony Society's championship for these native British breeds of ponies and small horses.

Shetland Classes

09:30 - 12:30  |  Ring Two

Full of character, Shetlands are strong and intelligent, and despite their small size were first used to pull carts and ploughs, and to carry heavy loads such as peat and coal.

You'll see plenty of Shetlands on display at the Alrewas Show; the breed is regulated by the Shetland Pony Stud Book Society and the Alrewas Show is a diary highlight for many Shetland owners.
