HORSE SHOW

Halifax Show Horse & Donkey Section Header

Thank you to all who entered the horse/pony and donkey classes which helped to make the Halifax show such a success this year.  I now have something to build on and plan to come back next year with a variety of classes that will hopefully offer everyone a good choice.  Thank you to those who have been in touch with feedback which is so essential to shaping future horse schedules.  You can contact me at horses@halifaxshow.org.uk with your ideas for next year.

HORSE SHOW CLASSES 2018

Message from Clair: “It is only fair to acknowledge there were some disappointments at last year’s Horse section and a great deal of work is going on to produce a fresh schedule for 2018. I have spoken to many people in the very short time I have taken on this role and there has been such support and goodwill with everyone having one aim – a successful horse and donkey show at Halifax.”
