Don’t miss the Ladies Cart Demonstration

Based on the stallion carts of north America and Canada, and also the English gigs, these single-horse vehicles provided newcomers with another route into the heavy horse sector, and established owners with a new objective.

The competitors have to adhere to a strict set of rules to compete in these classes.

We’re thrilled to have the team showing us how it’s done, at this year’s 10th anniversary event.
