World’s Top Showumpers Hoping to Be Crowned Champions at the Royal Windsor Horse Show CSI 5*

Windsor, England – May 08, 2023 – We’re hugely excited to release the stellar list of international Show Jumping entries for the 2023 Show! All four members of the British World Championship team to win a bronze medal in 2022 – Ben Maher (GBR), Joseph Stockdale (GBR), Harry Charles (GBR) and Scott Brash (GBR) – will be heading to Windsor with the hope of impressing selectors ahead of this year’s European Championships.

Leading the field will be last year’s Rolex Grand Prix winner, Gregory Wathelet (GBR), who will be hoping to retain his title in the prestigious class. 

Royal Windsor Horse Show Ambassador Joe Stockdale (GBR), also knows what it takes to win at Royal Windsor, having previously won the Under-25 Championship and the Puissance in the iconic Castle Arena. Stockdale will be joined by fellow Royal Windsor Horse Show Ambassador Jack Whitaker (GBR), whose uncle, 67-year-old John Whitaker (GBR) is sure to have the home crowd on their feet.

Fans of the London International Horse Show will be delighted to see the two legends of the 2023 edition back on home turf – winner of the Turkish Airlines London Grand Prix, Matthew Sampson (GBR), and leading rider of the Show, Jodie Hall-McAteer (GBR).

A strong international contingent will provide stiff competition to the British hopefuls. World No. 3, Martin Fuchs is sure to be seeking the victory which has thus far eluded him in the Rolex Grand Prix. Similarly, Austria’s Max Kühner (AUT) and Israel’s Daniel Bluman (ISR), who finished second and third respectively in 2022, will be looking to use this experience to improve on last year’s position.

Former Rolex Grand Prix winner Steve Guerdat (GBR) knows what it takes to take victory in the famous Castle Arena. The individual gold medallist from the London 2012 Olympics will be joined by the USA’s Kent Farrington (GBR), who also returns to Windsor seeking to reclaim the same prestigious title he won back in 2017.
