It's time to dig out your jodhpurs and head down to Windsor Castle for the annual Royal Windsor Horse Show, which this year is celebrating its 70th anniversary. Founded in 1943 and attended by King George VI, the show still has strong royal connections and HM Queen Elizabeth II often enters home-bred horses in the event. The Queen, her sister, Princess Anne, and the Duke of Edinburgh have all previously competed. It's the kind of event that makes you feel like you're taking part in a BBC costume drama, as the impeccably aristocratic competitors put their equestrian skills to the test in events including show-jumping, carriage driving and showing. The show takes place inside the private grounds of Her Majesty's Windsor residence, a stunning area of parkland and garden which is large enough to accommodate the 3,000 visiting horses and ponies. Highlights include the Shetland Pony Grand National, in which pint-sized ponies tear around the track at lightening-ish speeds, and the old fashioned fair complete with merry-go-round, helter skelter and ferris wheel. For further information on the event and ticket prices go to www.rwhs.co.uk.
