2022 is all about making up for the past two years! From nail-biting shearing competitions to the thrills and spills of equestrian events, Lister is delighted to be attending the below, as well as many others.
Blue Chip Championships
6th April- 10th April 2022
Held at Hartpury Arena, the 31st Blue Chip Championships is set to kick off a busy summer of equestrian events. With Lister sponsoring the 1.25m Championships, we have a terrific line-up of prizes for the placing competitors, including a set of Lister Clippers and Wahl trimmers!
Badminton Horse Trials
4th May- 8th May 2022
We are excited to announce that Lister has a stand at the Badminton Horse Trials!
Founded in 1949, Badminton is renowned for being the toughest and most thrilling equine event of the year. Spread over 5 days and including 3 disciplines, the horse and rider must first compete in Dressage, testing the pairs elegance, accuracy, and obedience.
Saturday is all about cross country. Competitors must ride around a physically demanding cross country course involving around 45 obstacles. They are required to complete this course at an average speed of 570 metres per minute, testing the pair's endurance, speed and jump ability.
After a challenging cross-country day, the horse and rider must compete in show jumping on Sunday. The course, consisting of jumps that are 1.30 metres high and 2.30 metres wide, puts the pair's accuracy, power, and control to the test.
The event is full of action and has one of the best shopping experiences in the equine calendar - this is one not to be missed.
12th May- 15th May 2022
The Royal Windsor show first originated in 1943 to help raise funds for the second world war. Since then, the show has grown in popularity among the Royals, with the Queen and her family attending regularly.
For over 60 years Lister has proudly maintained a receipt of a Royal Warrant, supplying our quality UK manufactured goods to the Queen’s horses. Following this, Lister is honoured to have a stall in the Royal Warrant area at the Royal Windsor Show.

Held in Malvern, the Three Counties Show consists of nearly 900 farming classes and over 290 equine classes. The equine village covers a variety of disciplines, including driving, showing, and show jumping, together with over 51 Horse of the Year Show qualifiers.
With Lister manufacturing both shearing and clipping equipment in the UK, we are delighted to be sponsoring the event. We will also have a stand at the event, where you can come along and ask any questions you may have.
11th May – 14th May 2022
Founded in 1854, the North East Agricultural Association of Ireland brought the Balmoral Showground, holding the ground's first event in 1894. The event covers everything from equestrian to agriculture competitions, as well as a thrilling shearing event that will see shearers travel from across Ireland to compete.
Royal Highland Show
23rd June- 26th June 2022
The Royal Highland Show is celebrating its 200th anniversary this year, with the first show taking place in 1822. Over 2,000 livestock participants compete in over 900 categories throughout the four days event.
Lister has a long history of supporting the Royal Highland Show and this year will be no different. We will be there throughout the show supporting the shearing event, as well as answering any questions you may have.
As hosts of the Golden Shears 2023, which Lister is proudly sponsoring, this event is going to be one to watch!
12th July- 15th July 2022
Founded in 1838, the Great Yorkshire Show has gone through many changes over the years. The show was cancelled for several years, firstly in 1915 due to the First World War and again in 1940 because of the Second World War. The show purchased its permanent grounds in Harrogate in 1950, making it the first event in the UK to do so. 72 years later the Great Yorkshire Show still stands at its grounds in Harrogate, with this year’s shearing events being sponsored by Lister.
18th July- 21st July 2022
Held in Llanelwedd, Wales, the Royal Welsh show sees over 230,000 visitors and 7,000 competitors a year. Several displays and attractions, as well as livestock and equine competitions, are the heart of the four-day event, accompanied by the showcase of food, drink, and shopping stalls.
For many years Lister has sponsored the shearing at the Royal Welsh Show and are proudly doing so again this year.
