Horse and Country Fair Trots Out For Another Successful Year!
Southern Horse and Country Fair - the ultimate equine and country
living event - will take place at the Royal Bath & West Showground
on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 October.
Contour Exhibitions & Events Limited have combined the best
of its renowned equine and country pursuit events to produce the
Southern Horse and Country Fair. Premium equine displays and advice
will rub shoulders with similar activities from the world of country
living. All this, together with a huge shopping village area with
over 200 exhibitors, means that the Southern Horse and Country Fair
is billed as being the biggest and best so far.
of the Fair include:
Rider coaching and sport psychology from internationally recognised
Mary Wanless, who has developed a technique that combines body and
mind to create the perfect rider;
" International carriage driving champion Gary Docking, who
never fails to impress the crowds with his carriage driving displays;
" For all those Thelwell fans, Shetland pony racing over jumps;
" A display involving gundogs and falconry from expert Graham
" A lesson in equine gentling from David Burleigh-Smith;
" A stallion parade from local studs and a variety breed parade;
" A presentation from equine behaviourists Equine Perfections;
" Instruction on the form for horses on showing from Lyn Russell.
well as such displays in the Supreme Equine Arena and the Top Equestrian
Arena, the Southern Horse and Country Fair will also feature the
popular Meet the Experts area, where a number of recognised experts
in their fields will be on hand to answer any questions. As a result,
the Southern Horse and Country Fair makes a great family day out
- and all under cover.
Turner, managing director of Contour Exhibitions & Events Limited,
commented: "We run successful equine and country living/game
fairs, and we decided this year to combine the two in an extravaganza
of a show, and as a direct result of popular demand. Horse ownership
and riding are so closely linked to country living that we are convinced
that this will be a winning formula."
