In a new addition for the 2023 event, Equestrian’s Got Talent will take place in aid of Riders Minds on Saturday evening, where top riders will showcase their lesser-known skills and provide a night to remember.

Visitors will also be able to enjoy the How to Yard with expert tips on stable management, plus the Red Gorilla Meet & Greet area. Timetables for the How To Yard and Red Gorilla Meet & Greet will be released by Your Horse Live next week and also shared on the Your Horse website.
