Harness Racing

As a fitting Grand Finale to all the Show's attractions, come and join in the excitement and tradition of Harness Racing. We welcome back the Wales & Border Counties Racing Association who will race in two heats and a final in the Grand Arena on Thursday afternoon.

WBCRA is the original independent harness racing organization in Great Britain.  You might know the sport as Trotting Races, as it's been a traditional Welsh rural sport for decades - the oldest race meetings date back to the nineteenth century.  In the early part of the twentieth century almost every village staged its own races and this practice still continues to some extent as WBCRA moves around a circuit of race meetings. The trainers and drivers are all amateurs, with men and women competing on equal terms.

If you've been Trotting before you'll know that this last event of the Show is really worth waiting for. If you've never seen it, come and share the excitement of cheering on the racers and you just might get hooked!


The White Helmets

Get revved up for The White Helmets - regarded by many as the best Motorcycle Display Team in the world. They will feature in the Grand Arena on Tuesday, giving their traditional, thrilling, and often rather tension-inducing display of high speed action and feats of skill and bravery!

In their immaculate uniforms, the Team performs spectacular feats of balance, incredible acrobatics, and death-defying high speed crossover rides and fire jumps. We might even witness their Six-Bike Fan, a formation newly perfected for this season! Not for the faint-hearted, their half-hour performance is an undoubted highlight of the Show's opening day.

This record-breaking team demonstrates all the qualities of teamwork, courage, trust and strength you'd expect from members of the British Army Royal Signals.

Make sure you're at the Grand Arena for their one-off performance at the Show on Tuesday.


Inter Hunt Gold Cup Relay

One of the many highlights at this year's County Show will be the Interhunt Gold Cup Relay competition now to take place over two days with 16 top relay teams competing to be the fastest clear over a course of demanding cross country jumps and obstacles.

Held over Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons in the Grand Arena, this is a great opportunity to cheer on your favourite team and watch horses do what they love best.  The riders from all walks of life and all ages will entertain us with their ability to control and navigate the course at high speed.

For those unfamiliar with the relay format, two teams of 4 riders line up to jump an identical course set out on each side of the arena. As the flag drops, a rider from each team gallops off to complete the course as quickly as possible, before handing over the baton to the next member of the team. The first team of 4 to complete the course wins. It's a simple format but very exciting to watch from anywhere around the arena.  The final will take place on Wednesday with the top teams from each day running against each other for the Gold Cup.
