Family entertainment at its thrilling best, watch ponies and carriages fly around an obstacle course against the clock. Marvel at the skill of the drivers, the bravery of the grooms and the agility of the ponies as they take on a course made of cones, barriers, arches and anything else they can lay their hands on!

All sizes and shapes of ponies can take part so miniature ponies can be flying around trying to beat Welsh cobs around the twisty course. Single ponies gallop against pairs, all trying to be the best on the day.

Come and see the four-legged friends helping keep Gloucestershire streets safe.

A good police dog must have high drive, be fearless and have lots of courage. This display will be full of chasing, showing how the dogs are used on a day to day basis in different situations.

When not in the Arena, you can visit their stand and meet the dogs and their handlers.

PoloPolo Demonstration

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.
