Knight on horse

Horse Boarding

An exciting extreme sport is back. 
A boarder on what can only be described as a big skate board with bigger wheels attached to a horse and rider, with speeds of over 30 mph around a series of obstacles.
The main aim is speed without touching or hitting the obstacles or penalty points are incurred. The fastest lap is the winner, sounds simple yes but these guys have no fear and on more than one occasion the boarder becomes detached from the horse and sometimes in spectacular fashion.

Watch these stunning birds of prey as they swoop and soar above the above your heads. Handled by some of the UK’s top falconers, under the leadership of Ben Long Falconry, you will learn how they are flown, used in sport, worked with dogs and you will enjoy out pageant of riders, birds and dogs, all in Tudor costume, and demonstrating falconry on horseback – just as it used to be done.

Again, you are welcome to meet the birds afterwards in the designated Falconry Marquee.

 Scurry Driving

A timed horse event where competitors run a course with obstacles. The ponies, usually in pairs pull a carriage that is operated by a driver and groom that balances a cart behind the ponies.

The teams take it in turn completing the course that is set inside the main arena.

There are different categories from novice to professional, and different sizes of the ponies. 

All have to work together as fast as they can through the obstacles such as cones and gates which are only a few centimetres wider than the carriage. 

If an obstacle is knocked or missed then penalty time is added to their overall finishing time. The winner at the end is the team that finishes the fastest and usually the one with the least mistakes.

It’s a fun action-packed event that is well worth watching.

Gundogs and Falconry Display

Don’t miss the incredibly synergy of these gun dogs and birds of prey working together.  Although the dog is a natural predator to the bird, with Paul Makepeace handling the dogs, and Ben Long handling the birds they work together as dogs and birds did in Tudor times.

Chase The Bunny

A firm Living Heritage Favourite! If your dog loves to chase this could be their moment! Dogs are matched to general size and speed and race to chase the lure around the arena. Great fun to both take part in and to watch – especially when the dogs run in completely the opposite direction, or find a more interesting smell.

Walk Up Shoot

Have you ever wondered exactly what happens on a shoot?  This is your chance to find out. With their team of gun dogs in various stages of training, Paul Makepeace of Trochery Gundogs, and Aubrey Ladyman will be taking us through how the dogs are used at every stage, from beating with spaniels, flushing the birds out, through to pointing and retrieval in a variety of tricky situations. They will also be demonstrating how gun dogs – both Spaniels and Retrievers – are trained.
