Friday 4th August 2023
Unfortunately, following a site meeting, the Hinderwell Show Committee have had to
make the difficult decision to cancel this year’s show, which was due to take place
this coming Friday, 4th August.
The prolonged period of bad weather means that the show fields are now too wet to
safely hold the show.
We will be in touch with everyone who has entered to arrange refunds over the next
few days but please bear with us as we are only a small committee and we are sure
you will appreciate that there are a lot of issues to deal with.
We are hoping to still run the children’s classes at an indoor venue, along with tea,
coffee and cake and a tombola. More details to follow.
Thank you to everyone for all your support and entries. We hope you will be able to
join us next year!

The show is said to have started to solve an argument between two local men who couldn’t agree who had the best Cleveland Bay foal. After this inauspicious start, the show has grown from strength to strength providing family entertainment and fun.
SHOW CLASSES AND ENTERTAINMENT
The show is still renowned for its Cleveland Bay classes – a breed of horse favoured the by Queen for pulling her carriages – but also gives people the opportunity to show their skills and animals in a range of ‘friendly’ competitions. It also include classes in heavy horses, pony breeding, ridden ponies, show jumping and gymkhana. Smaller animals also have the chance to shine with classes for sheep, ferrets and in the dog show.
There are also classes in vintage machinery, farm produce, garden produce, flowers, handicrafts confectionery, preserves and photography. Children get a chance to show off their talents with prizes for the best picture, collage, handwriting and various other arts and crafts.
Musical entertainment this year will be provided by Harry Thompson’s Fairground Organ and The Goathland and Glaisdale Hunt will also be making their customery appearance.
