Horse and Pony – cancelled


Horse Show Cancelled 2019

 

Sadly we have to announce that the horse show has been cancelled due to the outbreak of Equine Flu.  The committee held an emergency meeting on August 8 after being informed that the horse section was sadly being withdrawn.  Unlike many other shows, The Ceiriog Valley Show is held on the site of a fully operational livery yard and, as such, we cannot risk introducing Equine Flu to the pasture.  Whilst many owners vaccinate their animals we simply can’t take the risk, therefore, reluctantly, the decision was taken to withdraw the horse show this year.

The committee and its officials send our sincere apologies out to all those who are disappointed by this decision but hope you can understand that we are in the singular position of having a responsibility to our landlords and their business, as well as the wellbeing of the horses that normally graze on the show field.  We have however introduced a number of alternative new stalls and features, with a view to keeping an exciting and varied programme of events, in the absence of the horse show
