In our largest arena of Cheshire Game and Country Fair, the Andy Singleton Arena, we have space for some of our main attractions.
Our horse boarders will be on their fifth heat of the 2017 championships. An exciting extreme sport, where a boarder is pulled at speeds of up to 28mph around a series of obstacles by a galloping horse. Sounds crazy? It may be – but it’s also incredibly skillful and great fun to watch. We have both Elite and Intermediate heats in the Andy Singleton Arena (Novice in the Countryside Arena) Expect thrills and spills and plenty of flying mud!
Scurry Trials and Driving
In their fifth heats of the British Championships; these teams of ponies with their skilled drivers work their way around an arena full of obstacles in the fastest possible time.
JPL Shetland Racing Team
One definitely not to miss as you watch these fantastic little ponies hurtle round the steeplechase circuit with their young riders. Some hilarious between-race interviews reveal the jockeys’ strategies and you will want to scream for your favourites as they race past!
Parade of Hounds
The Cheshire Hunt will be with us again (TBC), with the Andy Singleton Arena allowing them the space to gallop with their horses and hounds in a spectacular demonstration. You will have opportunity to hear about how a modern day hunt works, and what it’s like to be a ‘runner’ for the hunt, running miles through open countryside for the hounds to track your scent, and probably being licked all over once they delightedly find you! Come into the ring and meet the hounds or visit them in the World of Dogs area.
Machine Vs Beast
Also with a chosen scurry team; we pit the skill and dexterity of these little ponies against the might of a 4×4 Isuzu vehicle under the expert handler
of Jeremy – a test driver and racing driver. Horsepower v Pony power – who will you be cheering for?
Don’t forget to visit the Isuzu stand! Isuzu are one of the main sponsors of Living Heritage Country Shows.
Sherwood Jaguar Racing Team
Showing you some speed with these beautiful sleek cars, the Sherwood Racing Team will be bringing a selection of cars to demonstrate just what they can do.
