    Ashfields Carriage Driving and Country Fair 7/8 May

    Sounds like this is going to be one for your diaries, they have fundog classes, gundog classes, terrier and lurcher classes and you can show puppies from 4 months so ideal for those with young dogs who need the practise :001_smile:
    We have 3 Lurcher's so will be enjoying the Lurcher classes and have never been to carriage driving before so this will be an all new experience :blink:
    Trade, craft and food stands are also on site so plenty to keep you busy all day!
    Here's a link to the web site
    Premier League Horse Driving Trials & Country Fair

    Hope to meet some of you there :D

    There is so much going on at Ashfields to be honest!
    Alongside the Carriage Driving Championship events and dog show classes, there are two central arena falconry displays, gun dog display by the 'A' panel kennel club judge Adrian Slater, K92000 dog display team, Richard Curtis heel work to music/freestyle display, Crufts Freestyle Winner 2006 and 2010, ferret display and Pony Club!!
    Plenty for everyone amongst all that I think :001_smile:

    I'm coming all the way down from Scotland for this one. Will there be a bar or do I need to bring my own. Who else is camping?

    There is a 'back to school' disco so I would assume there will be a bar but I always take some of my own supplies :D

    Good one :001_smile:
    We are also off to Selby this weekend, 22nd-25th, never been before but found out Bob Hogg Sheepdogs is doing a display and actor Jeff Hordley aka 'Cain Dingle' is making an appearance so should be good fun as well as 'four'!! yes 'four' consecutive days of dog showing, racing and simulated coursing :p:D

    Looking forward to Ashfields, looks like a great family friendly (including the four legged members) event.
    Anyone got prices? Address? Or even an events programme??
    Cheers

    It is to be held at Ashfields Polo and Carriage Park, Great Canfield, Essex CM6 1JU. 9am to 5pm. Ticket prices are £10, accompanied under 13's free, which is my favourite bit as I have two 12 year old's and normally get charged for them at other events! Hope the link below helps.
