There will also be a show and clear round jumping event and gymkhana classes - subject to entries on the day.

Jackie Jefferies, one of the organisers of the event, said there is something available for all the family.

She said: "This is our 11th show and they are always very popular.

"It is a fun show for people and ponies that everyone can join in.


"It is a good way to introduce children to ponies and enter a show as everyone gets a rosette.

"Fingers crossed the sun will shine for the day and we have a good turnout.

"We are all really looking forward to it.

"There will be stalls, a marquee, dog show and face painting."

It will be held from 9.30am until 5pm.
