Carriage driving is the oldest competitive equestrian sport and the Southern Horse and Carriage Association are putting on a demonstration challenge.
Drivers sit on a vehicle by a single, pair or team of four horses or ponies. They face a trail of obstacles that will test the fitness, obedience, and suppleness of the horses as well as the skills of the driver.

The Kids Pavilion offers a wonderful world of excitement, discovery and imagination for young children and families.
There is plenty of games, arts and crafts, animal nursery and sideshows to explore.
It is fun, it is action-packed - kids of all ages will not want to leave!
Wobbles the Clown will perform a classic mix of the silliest tricks, and no matter what he tries, it will always end up in a bumbling mess.
Luckily he can call on children from the audience to help him out. Magical mishaps, balancing blunders and juggling jams are just the beginning as Wobbles takes slapstick fun to a whole new level.
In this high energy show Dr Quark explores the science and forces behind the circus tricks we all love.
Dr Quark demonstrates the effects of gravity, momentum, friction, air pressure, energy transfer and push and pull forces with his unicycle, plate spinning, juggling and the... rolla bolla. He then applies those same concepts and more to his favourite science demonstrations. Yes! That means wacky water rockets, groovy gyroscopes, leaf blower levitations, voracious vacuums and the incredible ostrich egg squeeze!
Science is everywhere! Especially in the Circus! See Dr Quark in the Kids Marquee

You must not miss the finale of local farmers and ex-farmers who will take their hats off. As a “dance crew.” This will take them out of their comfort zone and minds of the hardships they face day to day on the farm in the current drought conditions to give them something to laugh about, and something out of their normal routine.
