The SESHA Heavy Horse & Country Show (Registered Charity No. 292389)

East Bysshe Showground, Eastbourne Road, Blindley Heath, Surrey RH7 6LF

The SESHA Heavy Horse and Country Show is one of the biggest Heavy and Working Horse shows in the South East, it takes place at the East Bysshe Showground, RH7 6LF on the A22. This year’s show is shaping up to be the best yet, with a fully packed programme over 2 days.

Saturday sees the Magnificent Working Heavy Horses demonstrating their skills. See the sheer muscle power of these gentle giants as they harrow the land, using traditional techniques. Their agility will also be put to the test in exciting timed trials, where horses pulling harrows weave through hazards and obstacles to compete to be the fastest.

Sunday is showing day, where the horses get dressed up in their finery. The day includes: In-hand, Driven and Ridden Classes. The Mare and Foal Class is always popular with visitors, giving them the chance to see the progression from foals to fully grown horses. The Young Handlers class gives handlers aged 13 to 18 a chance to show off their skills. The Trade and Agricultural turnout includes Brewery Drays, Wagons and Tip Carts. All Class winners will then compete for the Supreme Champion of the Show, followed by a final Grand Parade.

Ridden Heavy Qualifiers:
SESHA is pleased to announce that at our annual show we will be holding a qualifying class for the Kilmannan Ridden Heavy Horse Championship. The highest placed pure bred Shire, Suffolk, Clydesdale and Percheron within our affiliated pure bred heavy horse ridden class will qualify for the ridden championship final at Equifest.
