Agriculture has always been at the heart of the Royal Bath & West Show, so we are delighted to see the return of Livestock Classes after a 2 year hiatus (due to COVID). Livestock Classes will be taking place across all three days in the Sheep Ring, Cattle Ring & Pig Ring. Visitors will also be able to visit the Livestock lines, so they can get up close to the animals.
Lakeside Farm is perfect for the younger family members, giving them the opportunity to get up close with farm animals and learn about the field to fork process.
If you’re visiting the Show for the Equine, you will not be disappointed, with competitions including:
- Show Jumping (Main Ring on all three days)
- Scurry (Main Ring)
- Pony Club Games (heats in the Pony Club Games ring, with the finals taking place in the Main Ring across all three days)
- Heavy Horses (turnout displays in the Main Ring, and located on Avenue A)
Competition will be strong with the show hosting eight Horse of the Year Show (HOYS) qualifiers including Shire Horse of the Year, Mountain & Moorland Ridden Pony and Show Hunter Pony. The Equine Area will be located on Avenue A, adjacent to the Main Ring.
Great British Dogs has been a popular exhibit ever since it was introduced in 2019. Located near the Woodland & Countryside Arena, Great British Dogs showcases rare British dog breeds that visitors can meet. Their owners will also be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
