July 15, 2017 - July 17, 2017

This year’s show is jam-packed with great attractions and events. There’s something for everyone!

Shetland Pony Grand National

The Shetland Pony Grand National has all the trappings of a big race meeting: parade of ponies, jockeys in their racing colours being led to the start, and then “the Race” – 12 mini Aintree style fences for them to tackle amidst the cheers from the crowd. Shetland poniesand their jockeys who are all between 8 and 13 years old, race high speed heats and finals where the winner qualifies for the prestigious Olympia International Horse Show in London.

Family Free Play Zone

Plenty of things for little visitors to do and make, including circus skills with Panic Circus, animal petting with Edupets, facepainting, a magician, bouncy castle, panning for gold and lots more. Countryside Park

A quiet corner of the showground with loads of displays and exhibits for those interested in nature, countryside skills or field sports. Watch falconry displays, axe racing, ferrets & gun dogs, as well as the ever popular sheep show complete with their own dance routine!

The Grand Arena

As well as the morning equine competitions and the afternoon grand parades of cattle and horses, the Grand Arena also hosts lots of other great events. This year these include Harness & Scurry racing, the Interhunt competition and the end of day visit by the local packs of foxhounds.

Food, Craft & Horticulture Halls

If you want to see the creativity of the people of Pembrokeshire head to the Craft and Horticulture competitions in the Prendergast Building. In the adjacent Parkhouse Building you can sample some of the best food from local producers in the Castell Howell Welsh Food Hall.

And the show has even more to see with competitors in categories for Equine, Livestock (Cattle, Sheep, Pigs, Angora & Pygmy Goats), Crops – Field Crops & Growing Crops, Showjumping, Poultry, Vintage Vehicles & Engines, Open Dog Show & Dog Agility!

It may take you a couple of days to see it all!
