Royal Windsor Horse Show was first staged in 1943 to help raise funds for the War effort.
The first show was simply called the Windsor Horse and Dog Show. It took place on Wednesday 26th May 1943 and helped the Royal Borough raise £391,197 – enough money to buy 78 Typhoon fighter aircraft. It was attended by all the key members of the Royal Family including King George VI, Queen Elizabeth (the Queen Mother) and the two young princesses, Elizabeth and Margaret.
The Show was extended to two days in 1946, three days in 1947, four days in 1967 and five days in 1977.
My first visit was in approx 1983 - helping my father on his trade stand - one of my favourite pictures of him shows him on the stand at Windsor chatting to the Queen as she chose some items. He was wearing his usual attire of baggy cords, held up with baler twine, a check shirt, a slightly too big jumper, and a huge smile for Her Majesty.
My first visit was in 1973, at the age of 2! My mother’s Godmother (Aunty Eva) was a founder member, so my mother has been going to the show since 1950 or thereabouts! We’ve probably missed a handful of years but Windsor Horse Show holds a special place in our hearts.
I remember when it was held on the rugby fields where they now have the car park. I used to go as a child, but I've no idea what year I first went. Probably in the 90s, but it might have been the late 80s. 🤷🏼♀️
My first visit was 2021 - such a privilege to be in her majesty’s garden. The most amazing show and we look forward to coming back in 2022.
I hope to get to visit next year when Australia unlocks the boarders.
Last year. Loved it so much coming back again all the way from Bonnie Scotland!
My first & only visit was in 2015, was fabulous
Not been. It's not the easiest place to get too. Public transport poor.
1972 my dad took me, he was with the Band of the Irish Guards , who were the on duty in the band stand.
