The Westcountry Game and Equine Festival is amongst the first of the great regional game fairs in the calendar and is set to return on March 12 and 13, at the Bath and West Showground, Shepton Mallet in Somerset.

This long-established event, which attracts over 20,000 visitors, will introduce a wide selection of demonstrations to the new indoor equine arena, including top international show jumpers Graham and Tina Fletcher, stallion parades, pony club challenge, horse agility and scurry driving.

The brand new equestrian sport of Horse Agility is growing rapidly in popularity. In this fast and exciting sport, the horse has to overcome a number of challenging tasks from simple bending poles and crossing tarpaulins to tunnels, seesaws and A-frames, just as in dog agility but with larger obstacles! The shows other features includes an on-site clay shoot with Clay Shooting R Us, British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) Shooting School, air rifle coaching, BASC gundog scurries, terrier and lurcher shows, fly-casting demonstrations and coaching with Charles Jardine, archery, falconry, racing ferrets, vintage tractors and machinery, and the game cookery theatre.

Discounted advance tickets are available by visiting www.contour.uk.net or calling 01749 813899. You can also keep up to date with everything happening at the show by visiting www.contour.uk.net
