Horse Logging with Kate Mobbs

Horse logging offers an efficient, flexible approach to timber extraction and with the wide range of both traditional and modern equipment available it has much to offer the woodland owner. The horses can work through the full range of woodland operations from first thinings through to the final crop. They also provide a sympathetic tool for the management of ancient woodland and archaeologically important sites.

Kate works with her Ardenne horses, Kipp and the up and coming young Sol.

Cotswold Carthorse Society

The Cotswold Cart Horse Society has been attending Frampton Country Fair for many years. The Prize-winners from this year’s Annual Show are displayed in the Main Ring and the Jim Wiggett Cup for the best entry from a CCHS member will be presented during the parade. These beautiful and magnificent animals really look stunning. Do go over to the Heavy Horse Ring in the North end of the Showground to see the entrants in all their finery throughout the day. Their Annual Show starts at 11.00am.

Tent Pegging

In 1815, after the Battle of Waterloo, the Duke of Wellington started converting some of his light dragoons into Lancer regiments to counter the Polish lancers in Napoleon’s Grande Armee.

By mid Victorian times cavalrymen of the British regiments were stationed in India, which included the land on the North West Frontier later to become Pakistan. They would train back in camp on tent pegs driven into the ground, for Skill at Arms practice and for Military Tattoos.

Inter-Hunt Relay Heats

One of the most exciting Main Ring events, the relay is hugely popular. As usual, teams from across the West Country and South Wales compete against each other and against the clock in order to gain one of the four places in the finals. Seriously competitive high speed galloping and jumping horses along with human powered wheelbarrows; it really does make for heart thumping moments – especially for the organisers!! The excitement is electric during the relay so come and watch this thrilling event.
