The Redwings Show Online is back!

We’re delighted to announce that our popular Online Show for horses and pets is returning for 2021.

In exciting news, popular equestrian YouTuber, This Esme, will be helping us judge your wonderful entries. She will be taking on the judging of our ‘Happiest Hacker’ class – celebrating fantastic photos of you exploring the world with your equine pal!

Plus, for the first time we have online dressage classes, hosted by E-Riders, so horses and their owners can take part in classes from the comfort of their own yards, all whilst supporting our rescued horses and donkeys.

Plus, in true Redwings fashion, we’re including dogs in the fun too with a special ‘Doggy Dressage’ class – where owners and pooches can strut their stuff too!

Entries to the Redwings Show Online 2021 are now closed, all the winning entries can be found on our YouTube Channel - thanks to everyone who took part!

Unfortunately, we have decided that due to ongoing uncertainties surrounding coronavirus, we are unable to host our annual Redwings Show this year, but we hope that you can still have fun preparing your entries and showing off your beloved pets - of all kinds - in our online show. 

Redwings Show organiser, Jude Palmer, said: “We’re delighted to be bringing back our popular online Show, and very grateful for This Esme helping us with the unenviable task of choosing winners from gorgeous photos of happy hacking!

“Whilst we are disappointed to cancel our in-person show again this year, we hope that our supporters and showing fans alike can have fun preparing their entries for the Redwings Online Show instead.”

Horse photo classes include ‘Heavenly Horses’, ‘Perfect Ponies’ and ‘Cracking Cobs’, while pet classes - open to all animals - include ‘Cutest Pet’, ‘Funniest Photo’ and ‘Best Fur Family’.
