Check to make sure its not cancelled, most of the carparks will be unusable due to the rain

Hi netty, will say hello if i see you. The show will definatly start on the first day, it will take an awful lot for them to cancel after that but you never know. They have now got the car parks cut but it will be getting the public vehicles on and off. Been going for 30 years now and only missed through thr foot and mouth. This is only the 4th year i have not entered as nothing ready to go.

not sure how true it is but we were told at the GYS by traders that the show has to open its gates to the public for 1 day and if the show is cancelled after that the insurance they have will pay out ! we were told this would be the case by traders going from EoE show onto GYS they were spot on with their predictions.
devonbound

Yes i heard that too but have also heard that because the Royal Welsh is so big it would take an awful lot to cancel on 2nd day. But hay ho we have to go and make the best of it, this is the one show of the year i would never miss and i wish all over the gaters the very best of luck for the show. If you see me in the horse ring, dumpy lady in a bowler hat grooming for a dapple gray mare in the welsh harness class section a give me a wave or come and say hello after.

After seeing the kossacks still galloping while up to their hocks in mud a few years back, I doubt the bit of drizzle we've had this last few weeks will stop the show

Devonbound, I'll certainly cheer you on if I spot you!

Well just about recovered fron Builth, we finished 4th not too bad as only her 6th show and the only mare in the class, got back to the trailer and i promply collasped with dehydration even though i had drunk 2 bottles of water before we went in but my goodness it was hot. Had about 4 hours sleep over 4 days. We took the mare to Hay on Wye show where we won our driving class but we then went on to take the championship against the private driving, we will be out at the Welsh National.
