Details

Market Bosworth Country Show is a one day show organised annually by Market Bosworth Agricultural, Horticultural and Equestrian Society. In 2018 the chosen charity is Canine Partners.

Lots for all the family to enjoy: heavy horses, side saddle riding, Shetland ponies, cattle, sheep and pigs, Pony Club show jumping, vintage tractors, flowers, rare breeds and many trade stalls. The American Civil War Society will hold a living history camp and Canine Partners will demonstrate the many tasks their dogs can do to help people with physical disabilities.

The main entertainment this year will be provided by Bob Hogg with his highly entertaining displays, in which the dogs work geese and ducks. The display is informative for the adults and great fun for the children, as they are invited into the arena whilst the dogs work the ducks around an obstacle course, down a slide and into a pool. Bob also runs the Lamb National, an event for all the family where the hardy Herdwick sheep race each other over a number of obstacles. The Lamb Nationals provide an amusing commentary from the initial parade where the runners & riders are introduced with names such as 'Red Ram'’ and throughout the race describing each sheep's attempt to bleat the competition.

Have a go at archery, learn about bee keeping, bring the family dog to the fun dog show, enter your photos, jam and cakes in the flower show. Relax and enjoy a drink and listen to live music provided by The Phantoms.
