MAY DAY OUT FOR THE FAMILY AT THE BLINDLEY HEATH HEAVY HORSE AND COUNTRY SHOW

This early May Bank Holiday weekend take the family to watch heavy horses perform traditional workhorse skills at the Blindley Heath Heavy Horse and Country Show at the East Bysshe Showground, RH7 6LF. This massive event will feature the largest collection of heavy horses in Southern England. For the first time this includes a demonstration by the last working herd of Shire horses in London with volunteers from Operation Centaur, based in London’s Royal Parks and Historic Royal Palaces to promote the horse as a contemporary working animal, teaching heritage skills in conservation, agriculture and transportation to young people. Visitors will see these magnificent creatures put through their paces and will get a chance to learn more about Operation Centaur.
The showground also hosts falconry displays, vintage tractors, historic military vehicles and classic cars, regional goodies at the “Keep it Local” craft marquee and Food Hall and a traditional fairground. Back by popular demand are those magical Meerkats and other exotic animals to meet and photograph and on Sunday there will be miniature horses. On Sunday Bob Hogg returns with his wonderful team of working sheepdogs. Children are invited into the arena to get really involved as the dogs work ducks around an obstacle course. His displays are both fun and educational and Bob has demonstrated his unique training methods on BBC Countryfile and before royalty. On Bank Holiday Monday Tom Longton, who with his dogs won the English National Brace title and competes in international team trials, will be demonstrating the skills which make the Longton family so renowned. A third generation award-winning Longton, Tom makes his demonstrations educational and amusing – the children especially like to see when the ducks are misbehaving as they are put through their paces! Learn about Coppicing with demonstrations of old country crafts. Walkabout entertainment includes juggling, spinning plates and a Circus Workshop with Juggling Jim. Also on Bank Holiday Monday there will be the very popular Dog Show with Agility demonstrations, the Terrier Show, Terrier Racing and also “Have Go” Agility competitions so bring your dog to join in the fun.
