We were delighted to team up once again with the events staff at The South Eastern Shire Horse Association for their two-day Heavy Horse & Country Show at Blindley Heath in May this year.  We are in a large, bright white marquee with around 50 stalls.  The event has been amalgamated with the Blindley Heath Show, traditionally held over the first May bank holiday, so we are looking forward to a much bigger and brighter show.

 

Last year. 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 muscle off-set by a Miniature Horse Parade!

 

Sunday was showing day, where the horses got dressed up in their finery. There were 150 exhibits in the classic car show and the ever-popular Novelty Dog Show took place on Sunday afternoon, along with fast-paced Terrier Racing!

 

There were also Vintage Farm Machinery, Military Vehicles and Classic Car displays, besides heavy horse dray rides, fairground rides, refreshments, tradestands and, not least, our craft marquee.
