WCS Schedule Changes

As we continually look to make the massive schedule for the 2018 WCS the best it can be for exhibitors and spectators, a few minor tweaks have been made:

Junior Horse Team: Moved to 2:00pm on Sunday, Oct. 28th
English Riding: Moved to 4:30pm on Friday, Oct. 26th
Gelding Team & Not-so-junior Driver (65+): These two classes have been swapped as part of the Friday evening PRIME TIME schedule (5:30pm on)
Ladies Cart: Moved from 5:30pm on Oct. 27th to 1:00pm.
Feed Team Race: Canceled. Unfortunately, we did not have enough interest in the Feed Team Race to justify it being a part of the schedule.

Thank you to participants and spectators for your understanding of these minor changes. Further updates will be posted, if necessary, at www.WorldClydesdaleShow.com/schedule.


The official 2018 World Clydesdale Show program will be available for purchase on-site during the event. It will be produced as a full color, 8.5" x 11" book.

The 2018 World Clydesdale Show is less than 65 days away.

And that means the entry deadline is upon us!

The official deadline is this Friday (08/24/18). Entries not received or postmarked by this date are subject to a late fee of $200 and may not be listed in the event program.

Late entries will be accepted up through 9/25/18. Keep in mind that some classes may have a capacity and entries will cut off once capacity is reached.

To access the 2018 WCS Entry/Premium book and 2018 WCS Entry Form, click here.


Please be aware of an error in the 2018 WCS Entry/Rule Book. The book mistakenly stated that the same rider cannot compete in classes 1504 & 1505 (Western & English Youth Riding Classes).

This is an error. Youth riders are welcome to enter and participate in BOTH the Western & English classes.

Sorry for any confusion or inconvenience. If you need further clarification please contact our office at 815-247-8780 or secretary@clydesusa.com.
