The History of Bexhill Horse Show:

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.

This year Bexhill Horse Show has a number of new and exciting attractions as well as some old favourites.

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.

As always, the show offers a variety of jumping classes for amateur and professional riders and many in-hand and ridden showing classes, including Mountain and Moorland and Working Hunter classes. This show also offers spectators a chance to see driving horses in action and these turnouts are always a sight to behold.

A dog show will also be held. 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. All proceeds to St Michaels Hospice. For more information on this incredible charity visit

Back by popular demand, our Dog Showjumping class is a family friendly class that sees every type of pooch and their owners tackle a course of jumps in the fastest possible time. Although this class is “just for fun”, it’s amazing how competitive the participants get and often the handlers jump more than the dogs! Great entertainment for everyone and all proceeds to St Michaels Hospice.

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.
