If you have an equine related display and you would be interested in attending our 2017 show, please do get in touch – we would love to hear from you!

The Essex Hunt will be parading their pack of foxhounds in the Main Ring. This is a great opportunity for the public, particularly the children, to meet the hounds and everybody is invited into the ring for this parade.

The Pony Club will be providing us with lots of excitement with their display – we gather a few different Pony Clubs to compete in a range of different games with the chance of a place in the final which is held later in the day.

Due to popular demand, we hope the Essex Police Dog handlers will be returning with their exciting and varied display of their dog handling skills.
