Every year on the Late May Bank Holiday Monday, Bexhill-on-Sea hosts a very special show.


The first annual Bexhill Horse show was held in 1903 as a community show for working people to come together and show off their treasured and hard working horses.

Today, it is one of the only shows of it’s kind left in the country, aimed at bringing the local community together. Be they horse lovers or not, this show has an attraction for everyone.

Bexhill Horse Show has undergone a change in format for 2019 due to a noticeable decline in numbers for some of our showing classes. The most popular showing and jumping classes from previous years remain in the schedule and will be mainly in ring 2 in the morning. The parade class will be in ring 1 as usual and jumping classes remain the same as last year.


Ring 3 is now dedicated to dog agility. Due to the success of our “Dog Showjumping” class which we first added to the schedule in 2013, we have decided to give our spectators the chance to watch some agility dogs in action and we will be running our first Bexhill Horse and Dog Show Agility Show in 2019! The agility show will be run by Jumping Jack’s Agility and will have its own ring and will be open to pre entries and registered dogs only, but there will be a chance to “have a go” in a special class.  For more information on our new agility show please click here.


Our dog show continues to be a highlight of the show, with class numbers increasing year on year. Commencing at 12.30pm with something for every dog owner and type of dog. There are classes for both pedigree dogs and family pets, adults and children are welcome. Come and join the fun and remember all proceeds to St Michaels Hospice. For more information on this incredible charity visit www.stmichaelshospice.org


As always, the show offers a variety of jumping classes for amateur and professional riders, including a good variety of affiliated British Showjumping classes, giving competitors an early opportunity to jump on grass before big outdoor events such as Hickstead later in the summer. 


The show also offers spectators a chance to see driving horses in action and these turnouts are always a sight to behold.


As always we have the much loved and crowd pleasing Coakham Blood Hounds will parade in the Main Ring throughout the day. We also have a Tent pegging display team who will be putting their speedy and co-ordinated equines through their paces in the main arena.


Want to get involved? We are always looking for volunteers and sponsorship for the show so why not get in touch today and find out how you can help. Click here to contact us.
