Show information is shown in the tabs below

Welcome to our GBPRE online photo shows, bringing the GBPRE show straight to your stable door.

We really missed everyone coming together to compete at Hartpury in 2020 due to the Covid pandemic. With this in mind we tried to capture the spirit of the show and launched our first online spring photo show in May, with classes for everyone, including free entry classes for our valued GBPRE members. Such was its success, we decided to capture the spirit of the festive season by holding a winter photo show in December. 


A photo show is exactly as it sounds, you select your classes to compete in and submit your photo entry. Rosettes are awarded 1st to 6th place in each class and special rosettes are also awarded for certain classes. Prizes are awarded to 1st and 2nd placed competitors. For full details of show sponsors, awards and prizes, please go to the Spring & Winter show pages (see Show menu above).

50% of all our show profits will go to our chosen GBPRE partner: Redwings Horse Sanctuary


Our winter photo show prize pot has a total value of over £750!!!

 

Entry Fees
