This year’s award-winning South West Christmas Equine Fair promises to be an action-packed two days.

The event will provide horse enthusiasts of all ages, levels and disciplines with a full schedule of exciting entertainment over the two days and will take place at Westpoint in Exeter on Saturday, December 8 and Sunday, December 9.

Headlining in the equine arena will be top international show jumper Tim Stockdale and world class dressage rider Lucy Wiegersma. Both top names in their field and both will provide excellent entertainment and education.

Emma Massingale will also feature in the arena demonstrating natural horsemanship training.

There will also be the return of the fast-paced pony club horse and hound show jumping challenge on Saturday and the junior show jumping competition on Sunday.

A sports horse and competition stallion parade (Saturday) and a native stallion parade (Sunday) will show the best of the Westcountry Stallions.

In addition to the unrivalled entertainment, the show also features a dedicated shopping village with over 150 companies offering helpful advice and great show offers on 1000’s of products for horse and rider including many big name brands.

Also look out for the BETA RoboCob, a life-size mechanical horse, on the BETA stand in the annexe!

This is certainly the total equestrian experience for the dedicated rider!
