When you have completed your entry online, you will receive an email from My Riding Life confirming that your entry has been received. After entries have closed, you will then receive a second email, prior to 15th June, from RFIdentikit which will request you to allocate your e-tickets.

This year to receive your e-ticket allocation you will need to allocate your e-tickets to your associates who will be attending the Show with you. An e-ticket will not be released unless it is allocated to a valid email address. Please ensure this email address is for the person accompanying you to site as this will also be used to send them their Health Questionnaire.

After allocating your e-tickets they must be printed and brought with you to gain access.

Three passes will be issued for the first horse / pony entered. Competitors with more than one horse / pony will then be issued with an additional three passes per horse / pony.

Driving entries will be provided additional passes based on the turnout entered.

HEALTH QUESTIONNAIRE
All Competitors and their associates will be required to complete a Health Questionnaire on each day they are competing/attending the Show Ground. This will be emailed to the email address associated with an allocated e-ticket. E-tickets will be linked to Health Questionnaires so failure to complete the questionnaire prior to arrival on site will result in delayed entry or refusal of entry to the Show Ground.

EQUINE INFLUENZA VACCINATION CERTIFICATES
All horses and ponies entering the Showground must be vaccinated according to the requirements below, and vaccination certificates / passports must accompany the horse or pony to the Show, and be available for checking. There will be no tolerance of Equine Influenza Vaccination Certificates that do not meet Show protocol, as seen below. If discrepancies are found, this will result in the horse being sent home immediately, without competing and/or any prizes will be forfeited

Horses competing at FEI Events must comply with the requirements for Equine Influenza vaccination in accordance with the Veterinary Regulations and as summarised on Page 10 of the schedule.

All horses / ponies taking part in competitions / displays other than those governed by the Rules of the FEI must have certificates of vaccination against Equine Influenza complying with the above.

It is the responsibility of Owners of horses / ponies based in the United Kingdom to settle directly with the Show’s veterinary surgeons any veterinary costs incurred while a horse / pony or horses / ponies in their ownership are on the Showground if, for any veterinary or animal welfare reasons, a horse is declared unfit to travel. Any owner who fails to settle a veterinary account and / or other related costs will be excluded from future entry to the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

Where, in the opinion of the Show’s Veterinary Surgeon, a horse is so severely injured that it ought to be humanely destroyed, the owner / trainer / rider / driver should, wherever possible, first be informed. However, the Show’s Veterinary Surgeon may proceed with humane destruction, without reference to owner / trainer / rider / driver, in order to prevent undue suffering to the horse. Before taking this action the Show’s Veterinary Surgeon should, wherever practicable, seek a second veterinary opinion. In such eventuality, owners are responsible for the cost of disposal.
