It may be – but it’s also incredibly skilful and great fun to watch. We have both Elite and Intermediate heats in the Andy Singleton Arena (Novice in the Countryside Arena) Expect thrills and spills and plenty of flying mud!

Parade of Hounds
The Clinkard Beagles will be with us again, with the Andy Singleton Arena allowing them the space to gallop with their horses and hounds in a spectacular demonstration. You will have opportunity to hear about how a modern day hunt works, and what it’s like to be a ‘runner’ for the hunt, running miles through open countryside for the hounds to track your scent, and probably being licked all over once they delightedly find you! Come into the ring and meet the hounds or visit them in the World of Dogs area.
