The next show is on Sunday 2nd August, 2020 on the land adjacent to Barleylands, in Essex. Visit our How to get there page for maps and more information on travel and entry prices.

Around the arenas you will find a large selection of trade and craft stands with lots of places to eat and drink. See the horses, handlers and riders get dressed up in their finery. There are also lots of trade and craft stands as well as classic cars on display.

Main arena highlights
The Mare and Foal Classes are always popular. The Young Handlers class gives handlers aged 13 to 18 a chance to show off their skills. The turnout classes include Brewery Dray, Wagons and Tip Carts.

Take a trip back in time to see the magnificent coaches and teams decked out in period costume at the Coaching Marathon. See them at 11am in the ring before they then leave the showground for a drive around the local area and return to the main arena at 13.00 for final judging.

There is also parades of hounds from a local hunt, the vintage vehicles and finally a parade of all the heavy horse competitors with the presentation of trophies.

Driving arena highlights
Private driving focuses on traditional turnout with judging requirements varying according to class. The classes available include exercise vehicle, pleasure driving, open private driving, light-trade turnout. The light trade turnout class comprises a combination suitable for a tradesman who delivers light goods; appropriate traditional turnout is of vital importance in this class. The Hackney pony and horse is an elegant high stepping carriage horse. Hackneys possess good stamina, and are capable of trotting at high speed for extended periods of time.

This year there is a driven Concours d'elegance to be judged on the overall picture of elegance presented by horse/pony, driver and rider groom including appearance. The winner is the horse or pony the judge would most like a painting of over their fireplace.
