The Royal Windsor Horse Show has become Britain's premier show jumping meeting this year, with the Nations Cup among the 10 international classes to be held beneath the spectacular backdrop of Windsor Castle from 14 to 18 May, writes Genevieve Murphy.

These will be the first international jumping contests to be held for 24 years at Windsor, where the annual horse show is the biggest in the world. Costing pounds 1m to stage, it incorporates the Harrods International Driving Grand Prix (for which 13 nations are entered) and two days of dressage and showing classes with more than 3,000 entries. The show takes over the Nations Cup from the cancelled meeting at Hickstead.
