Cancellation of 2021 Show
The Directors of Yealmpton Show are sad to announce that due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s Show, due to be held on Wednesday 28th July, has been cancelled.
We were hoping we would be able to run but, although recent news about the easing of restrictions is much more positive, we feel there are too many uncertainties around large events with many concerns not able to be clarified until nearer the date.
We are all deeply disappointed to have made this decision. We know that for so many, the Show is a very special day in the year. However, to put on such a high quality event for around 9,000 people requires many months of planning, organisation and financial outlay. The health and safety of all the visitors, volunteers, stewards, traders and exhibitors is our foremost consideration.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Yealmpton Show on Wednesday, 27th July 2022.
Entertainment for 2020
A great day out for all the family
From a Countryside Marquee to Food Hall, Cakes and Handicraft to Diggers and Tractors, there is plenty at Yealmpton Show for everyone regardless of age to enjoy.
There are two main rings, Ring 1 and the Countryside Arena. The two rings will be packed full of entertaining things for all to see and enjoy throughout the day. Rings 2, 3, 4 and 5 host the show jumping, horse and pony showing, children’s fun classes and working hunters.
Grand Parade and Presentation of Cups
The Grand Parade is the highlight of the show. The parade is a chance for the winning horse, sheep, cattle and goat exhibitors to show off their animals, as well as including the presentation of the cups.
In the Countryside Marquee you will find a collection of different attractions all related to the countryside, from donkeys, to duck and owls and from alpacas to bees and with lots of things for children to get involved in. The Marquee is located at the top of the show field adjacent to the Countryside Sports Arena.
Devil’s Horsemen – Cossack and Wild West displays
By popular request, the Devil’s Horsemen will be making a return visit as the 2020 main ring attraction. There will be two displays, one being Cossack Riders and the other will be a Wild West demonstration. Demonstrations will be at 13:30 and 15:00.
The Devil’s Horsemen
The Devil’s Horsemen love returning to their roots to entertain live crowds when they are not filming – an experience that is as invigorating for their horses as it is for their riders. For audiences, it is a fantastic opportunity to meet the famous equine stars and to witness them perform enthralling film-set stunts and tricks in real life.
Originating on the Russian Steppe, The Cossacks are famed for their horsemanship in military history. During times of peace, their daring battle techniques were transformed into acrobatics on horseback.
The Devil’s Horsemen’s fully choreographed show includes trick-riding, a Roman-riding race, liberty acts, carousel displays and a classical high school dressage display with full commentary and background music.
For this show, our team needs physical fitness, gymnastic ability and a horse who enjoys tearing along at a full gallop, while it’s rider performs hangs, drags, vaults, and saddle stands.
Wild West Show
Modelled on Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show of 1896, The Devil’s Horsemen performance is a magnificent display of horsemanship set against a comedy narrative, with full commentary and background music. It is a salute to America’s true folk hero, the cowboy.
Watch The Devil’s Horsemen take part in a shoot-out, stagecoach chase, choreographed fighting, trick-riding, a Roman-riding race and a classical high school dressage display.
