Watch this space… we have an exciting timetable of main ring entertainment schedules for you at the 2017 Show. In the meantime take a look at the attractions which filled our main rings at last year’s Show!

Metropolitan Police Activity Ride

We were delighted to welcome the world famous Metropolitan Police Activity Ride as our main ring attraction at the 2016 Show!
The fun, fast moving display demonstrates the remarkable skills of the mounted officers and incredible training of their horses, all of whom who are fully operational. Witness complete trust between each horse and its rider whilst they jump through fire, paper walls and complete fast crossovers.
Watch uniformed riders jumping over bush jumps whilst removing their stirrups and saddles. Don’t miss their exciting performance each day in the main ring.

Heavy Horse Musical Drive

First performed and unique to the New Forest and Hampshire County Show, this Heavy Horse Musical Drive is a breathtaking display as the horses in harnesses move around the ring choreographed to music. With 16 pairs coming together, criss-crossing and circling it certainly is a fabulous sight.

The Grand Parade

The Grand Parade of prize winning cattle and sheep takes place in the Hoburne East Ring ring each day at 3.00 pm.
It is a wonderful sight with the very best of the livestock assembled. The Supreme Champions and other significant winners will be presented with their trophies and prizes together with all the breed representatives parading. The vintage tractors join this marvellous display and visitors can really enjoy this traditional part of our agricultural heritage.
With a commentary provided to add to the enjoyment, you will be sure to appreciate the exhibits and learn from the experience.

Inter Hunt Relay & Hound Parade

This ever popular attraction is run against the clock over fences and is being held each day in the West Ring. This is a fiercely fought contest so even if you know nothing about horses you will be impressed by the speed and skill of these riders and their horses. The louder you cheer the faster they go and higher they jump, so be sure to cheer them on! It’s a fast paced knock out relay that in NOT to be missed. The 2016 Inter Hunt Relay is sponsored by Kubota.

Guinness World Record Attempt

Join us at 4.30pm in the Hoburne East Ring each day and be part of a Guinness World Record attempt. We will be trying to break the record for ‘The Most Wellington Boots thrown Simultaneously’ and we need your help.

All of the wellies have been kindly supplied by Joules who will be donating all boots to the Small Steps Project after the Show.

Tractor Tug of War

We invite young and old to come in to the ring, pick up the rope and take the strain, The more the crowd shout the harder it seems to be to move the tractors. As far from a normal tug of war competition as it is possible, ‘Join the Adventure’ and heave as hard as you can.
