The Hinderwell Horse and Agricultural Society will celebrate its 150th show on Friday 9th August 2019, starting at 09:00am.
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. Alpacas and owls will also be on show along with over thirty craft and trade stands that range from antique books and jewellery to plants and children’s amusements.
