They pride themselves on being the most accomplished stunt show team in the United Kingdom and quite possibly the World. The facts speak for themselves, with 8 World and over 25 British Championship titles you’re sure to see some of the most impressive tricks, jumps and stunts possible, many of which you would not think possible on a bicycle – prepare to be amazed!
Mounted Games Association of Great Britain
Fast and furious family entertainment! The speed of the ponies and the agility and horsemanship of the riders is breathtaking. Check out the amazing teams with a high degree of athletic ability, fabulous riding skills, hand-to-eye coordination, determination, perseverance, and a competitive spirit!
Dog and Duck Show
The Dog and Duck Show is the most popular sheepdog display in the UK, providing highly entertaining sheepdog demonstrations with the aim of giving a better understanding of our canines’ behaviour. We rescue sheepdogs and use these trained and untrained canines in the arena, educating and entertaining audiences about common dog issues, while the dogs show their natural instincts as they herd Indian Runner Ducks.
The Poppy Parachute Team
These amazing guys are The Royal British Legion Extreme Human Flight Team. As serving and former members of the Army they support charities that help the Armed Forces do this by both fund raising and increasing public awareness of the charities and their plight. Hold your breath as they aim to hit the centre of the arena!
Hawkeye Falconry Display
A very welcome return for Hawkeye Falconry UK. Their bird of prey displays bring the ancient art of Falconry to the modern age, with a far-reaching and breathtaking display, that is designed to thrill. The team have been giving professional falconry displays for many years and in that time have built up a reputation for giving one of the most sought-after and memorable bird of prey displays on the outdoor show circuit. Don’t miss it!
Founded in 1894, Cirencester Park is the oldest Polo Club in Great Britain. Just a stone’s throw from the show site, the Club is set in 3,000 acres of parkland and woodland and plays host to a full fixture list throughout the season.
If you’ve always liked the idea of Polo, but never understood the rules, now is the time to hear from experts with demonstrations of basic hitting and passing skills, and to round off the display an exhibition chukka.

The Hound parade by Vale of White Horse Hunt & Royal Agricultural College Beagles takes place in the Bathurst Arena. Everyone is welcome to come and meet the two packs after the parade.
Hook Norton Dray Shire Horses
Hook Norton Brewery are one of the last remaining breweries in the country that still use shire horses for weekday deliveries of beer. They have four shires in their stables at the brewery and have brought them to the Show.
