A perennial crowd-puller; the Main Ring action starts at 8am on Wednesday 31 May and includes Private driving, Pony Club games and the inter-hunt relay.  A brand new class – the Jockey Challenge –  has been added this year. Jockeys and showjumpers will be paired up to ride a parallel course against the clock, which is sure to get the adrenaline pumping!

The Main Ring will also feature a UK agricultural show exclusive for 2017; the Royal Bath & West Show will also be the only one in the UK to feature the Diggerland JCB Stunt Team!
