The Bakewell Show

The Bakewell Show is one of the oldest agricultural shows in the UK it has around 200 years of history and is a wonderful day out for all the family. It is held in the beautiful peak district of Derbyshire and has entertainment for all the family to enjoy. This year it is to be held over 2 days August the 3rd and 4th.

Amongst many of the horse classes they hold every year this year they are holding classes for ex race horses. These classes are organised through the Ex Racers Club which is a non profit organisation for ex race horses. I actually founded this organisation around 6 years ago and I also have an ex race horse too but more about him on another post. I am very proud to say I am also sponsoring these classes too in Egyptian Inspirations name. If you are in the area or looking for a great day out them go along you won't be dissaponted.

O'h and the answer is yes. That is my horse in the picture above.

  1. It looks a really good show, it's a pity I'm not nearer the Peak District or I'd definitely be there.
    Interesting about the horses too.
