Competition Information

We appreciate there have been some technical difficulties with our entry program. The Royal Agricultural Society of WA would like to apologise for any inconvenience this has caused and advise these issues have now been fixed.


The Horses in Action competition comprises horses and ponies which are divided into Show Horse, Show Hunter and Rider competitions. Horses are judged on conformation, presentation, manners and paces within their field. Show horses should have a fine bone conformation and show hunters should be a pleasant ride. A win at the Perth Royal Show opens the door for a Show Horse or Show Hunter to compete at a National Championship.

The Competition is conducted in two parts:

Part One: The Farm Skills Competition is where teams enter from college/school and points are awarded for placings in each of the twelve events.

The Farm Skills Competition consists of events such as chemical safety first aid and sheep shearing and wool handling.
Part Two: The Show Section Competition is where individuals enter Sections of the Perth Royal Show and points for places are allocated to their college/school.

We regret that the Carriage Driving competition will not be running in 2021.

2021 Judges are Greg and Geraldine Crocker.

In case of border closure we have Cecile Maddams and Samantha Applin lined up.
