The horses will be looking their finest with a range of in-hand and ridden showing and show jumping classes, including the Traditional Gypsy Cob Association.

In the Children’s Ring, will be the Lead Rein Pony and Fancy Dress classes, plus the unique Mountain and Moorlands.

The Annual Show gives students attending Doncaster Equine College and the NRC an opportunity also to showcase their work before they go on to work in riding schools, eventing or racing yards.

Colonel Stephen Padgett, Chief Executive at the Northern Racing College said: “We’ve had great support for the Annual Show from local businesses, competitors and the general public. Our students, horses and staff are looking forward to seeing everyone on the day. It’s an opportunity to showcase our fantastic facilities, the work we do at the College and for people to meet our team.”

The fun dog show offers the chance to enter or just coo at the Puppy class, to admire the Pedigree dogs and smile at the Happiest Dog classes.

The current fundraising campaign aims to replace an ageing riding simulator,
