  • Building on the success of the first RoR Showcase at Aintree last year the 2019 RoR Showcase will be held at Hartpury University and College in Gloucestershire

  • A day of live demos, close up clinics, expert advice and displays with former racehorses

Following the success of the inaugural RoR Showcase at Aintree Equestrian Centre last year, RoR is delighted to announce that the 2019 RoR Showcase day will be held on Saturday 23rd November at Hartpury University and College in Gloucestershire. Once again, the day will be an inspirational training and educational event designed by RoR to highlight the talent and transition of thoroughbred racehorses to their second careers.

Visitors to the RoR Showcase, which is supported by The Racing Foundation, will have the chance to enjoy live clinics and a wide range of up-close demos, in and around two Arenas. Showing, dressage, eventing, endurance, natural horsemanship and western riding will all be showcased along with the RoR Dressage Display Team.

A line-up of top trainers and experts is currently being finalised and to date includes show producers Katie and Chris Jerram-Hunnable, flat-work with Cara Hayward and pole-work with Daniele Bizzaro, Western Rider Emma Lonie, and a Painted Horse demo by Nicole Rossa and Kirsty Davis. Other racing industry and equine experts will share their knowledge discussing the racehorse as an athlete and its transition to a new career, using real racehorses.

In addition, there will be an Ask The Experts Lounge where visitors will have the opportunity to ask one-to-one questions and gather more tips and advice from all the experts.

Di Arbuthnot, RoR Chief Executive explains: “Last year’s event received fantastic feedback and we are delighted that the 2019 RoR Showcase will be held at Hartpury in Gloucestershire to offer more riders in and around the midlands and southern regions the chance to come together and learn about owning and retraining former racehorses. The day will be a showcase for the work of the charity all under one roof with a host of experts and industry professionals from the racing and equine worlds.”
