Make a Note in your Diary: The 2010 Great Yorkshire Show

The 152nd Great Yorkshire Show takes place on Tuesday 13, Wednesday 14 and Thursday 15 July, at Harrogate when more than 130,000 visitors are expected to come through the gates. The annual countryside showcase is now the premier agricultural show in England and is renowned for high quality show jumping and superb showing classes. Last year there were more than 2,000 horses and ponies taking part over the three days. Taking the 2009 Cuddy Supreme In Hand Championship was a ten-year-old bay brood mare, Rotherwood Flamenco, from the Stanley Grange Stud in Co. Durham, whilst William Funnell won the Ripon Select Foods Cock o' the North Show jumping Championship with Cortaflex Mondriaan.

Honorary Show Director Bill Cowling says, "The show has always enjoyed enormous support from the equestrian competitors and I am sure 2010 will build on that. With three rings, including the Main Arena, used for equine classes, it is clear our commitment to showcasing the best remains a priority."

There are two new classes - one for Retrained Racehorses, and a new Mountain and Moorland First Ridden Class. In show jumping, a Grade A Senior Jumping class has been added which will take place on Thursday morning. This will be an open competition and be a single round against the clock.
