2018 World Clydesdale Show Streaming

All classes (from both arenas) are scheduled to be LIVE streamed as part of 2018 World Clydesdale Show events. The streaming link will be posted as soon as it is finalized.

In addition, all individual classes will be cut down, edited and posted for viewing on YouTube.

We are very excited about streaming and multi-media opportunities at the 2018 World Clydesdale Show, and we thank the following sponsors for making it all happen:


WCS Schedule Changes for Oct. 26th

The 4:30pm start time for English Riding on 10/26/18 has been eliminated; all Veterans Memorial afternoon classes on 10/26/18 afternoon will simply be wrapped together, in order, beginning at 1:00pm (English Riding will take place immediately following Registered Gelding Cart)

  • The Not-So-Junior Driver Team Class (ages 65+) scheduled for the PRIME TIME schedule of 10/26/18 has been moved to that same date’s afternoon schedule, and will take place immediately following English Riding.

  • The Budweiser Clydesdales exhibition during the 10/26/18 PRIME TIME schedule has been moved up one slot, ahead of the Registered Mare Team.

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 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.
