Unfortunately, due to the difficulties we have encountered in the past in the returning of perpetual trophies, it has been decided that they will not be handed out. However, winners may come to the Secretary’s tent and take a photo as a memento of their success.

Leicestershire & Rutland Rural Policing Team
In addition to the many other attractions at the show this year we are delighted to announce that as part of the Rural Policing group the Mounted Police will be in attendance at the Show with two of their horses. As well as being able to come close to these exceptionally well-trained horses, the police will be offering free tack identification/marking.

Entry to the Show
Blaston Show greatly values your participation and we trust that our competitors appreciate that the Show is a registered charity, with the purpose of raising funds for deserving local causes. As such, to avoid any misunderstanding or misinterpretation we would inform all equine and livestock competitors that their competition entry fees (regardless of number of classes entered) entitle them to complimentary Show Entry for a maximum of 2 people only.

Any additional people/helpers, over the age of 12, travelling in that horsebox or towing vehicle, will be charged £5.00 each for admission. Any other people/helpers in other vehicles accompanying horseboxes or animal trailers will be directed to the public car park and pay the standard entry fee.
