*** WORKING HORSE FESTIVAL ***
It is with deepest regret that the above event with its array of classes will not proceed in 2019. The competitive element is very sadly cancelled.
The event will still take place with ploughing, working down and drilling demonstrations. The festival will also feature a demonstration of agriculture through the ages with horse drawn implements alongside vintage and modern machinery. In addition static demonstrations including harnessing up, a mechanics of the horse talk and farrier displays will also feature. Anyone who has entered will have their entries, along with entry fees returned.
The Young Handler Accumulator trophy presentation will take place at North West and Wales Foal Show and Sale on 12th October.
