At the Event
Not only do we expect to see plenty of competitors on our event days we also expect to receive spectators. There will be catering on site and if you would like to be recommended nearby accommodation please contact us.
We love to see all animals however please can we ask that all dogs to be kept on short leads whilst at the showground, I am sure you understand why! Please also pick up after them and use the bins provided to dispose of bags. DO NOT leave poo bags on fences/in bushes.
Please take away all litter (or use the bins provided) - horseboxes/ trailers are not to be mucked out at the showground. We also ask that all plaiting bands are taken home with you - the fields are used for grazing and we wouldn't want our cherished steeds hoovering up any disgarded bands/ litter.....
