Working Horses

The working horses in the Woodland Area are a fantastic sight to see. These large breeds work closely with conservationists to ensure woodland logging and clearing is completed in an eco-friendly way.

Saxon Re-enactments

Herigeas Hundas will be bringing Saxon history to life in the Woodland Area. The living history experience will cover different crafts and skills along with armour, weaponry and fighting demonstrations.


The Palemaking competition is like no other at the Show. Testing the competitors speed, accuracy and skill, the Palemaking competition asks it contenders to produce as many pale bundles as they can to as high a quality as possible in just 40 minutes. Each bundle must contain 25 pales and each pale must be as close to 10cm wide as possible. Using a froe and froe club, the competitors split wood along the grain to produce pales which are used to hold up fences. Don’t miss out on seeing this rare craft and watch the showdown.
