Horseboarding is an equestrian sport in which a rider on a horse tows a board rider on a mountain board.
The horse rider must be in total control of their horse, in order to maintain correct speed, position and acceleration to keep the board rider stable on his board. The board rider must be able to constantly read and interpret the speed and position of the horse in order to keep himself on the board. Constant communication between the horse rider and the board rider is an essential part of the sport. Thrilling to watch!

‘THE ARENA DRIVING CHALLENGE’ – great family entertainment. Watch ponies of all shapes and sizes take on a timed obstacle course made of cones, arches, barriers, flags and ramps. Speed, agility and bravery required!

Hunts and Hounds
Enjoy the majestic spectacle of our local hunts, galloping around the arena with their packs of hounds, then come in and meet the hounds and say hello to the horses. Obviously hunts do not chase animals, but willing human volunteers. Do you think you could beat the hounds?
Different hunts at each show (tbc) but we are hoping for the hunts and hounds at all our shows in 2017 with the possible exception of Thame
Pony Club Games
The Pony Club is an international voluntary youth organisation, dedicated to encouraging young people to ride and to care for horses and ponies, whilst promoting the highest ideals of sportsmanship.
