We were delighted to team up with the events staff at The South Eastern Shire Horse Association for their two-day Heavy Horse & Country Show at Blindley Heath in May last year.  We were in a large, bright white marquee with around 50 stalls, smack in the middle of the very large show site. 


This year, the show has been amalgamated with the very popular Blindley Heath Show which has long been held over the early May Bank Holiday.  It promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Saturday visitors saw the Magnificent Working Heavy Horses demonstrating their skills as they ploughed and harrowed the land, using traditional techniques. Their agility was also put to the test in exciting timed trials, where horses pulling harrows wove through hazards and obstacles to compete to be the fastest.  All this power off-set by a Miniature Horse Parade!

 

Sunday was showing day, where the horses got dressed up in their finery. The Trade and Agricultural turnout include Brewery Dray, wagons and Tip Carts.  The ever-popular Novelty dog show took place on Sunday afternoon, along with fast-paced Terrier Racing!  There was also Vintage Farm Machinery, Military Vehicles and Classic Car displays, along with heavy horse dray rides, fairground rides, refreshments, tradestands and, not least, our craft marquee.


The Heavy Horse & Country Show has been held annually in Blindley Heath for a number of years. The organisers expect 3,000 - 5,000 visitors this year - if the weather's kind!  There is free parking, a £10 entry fee for adults and under 16s enter free. Craft Exhibitors will be given a car park parking pass - unloading takes place at the marquee and parking is nearby.  There is no electrical power available.
