Inspiration, education and top class entertainment. These words sum up this year’s arena demonstrations at the regions premier equestrian event.
Held at Westpoint in Exeter on Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th December, the Westcountry Equine Fair promises to be an action-packed two days, with an excellent equestrian shopping village, celebrities and fabulous demonstrations.

The Heavy horses include: Canadian Belgiums; Clydesdales; Comtois; Percheron; Shires and Suffolk….and the Mini Shetland! The Western Counties Heavy Horse Society will also be on hand to answer any questions.
The Breeds will have a display to music in the indoor arena on Saturday, 7th December and the Heavy Horses will have a display to music on Sunday, 8th December
Nearly ten years ago, Beamish the Shire horse started raising money and visiting life limited children. He met his lovely friend the mini Shetland. From this great friendship the Heavy Horse Village evolved to the amazing spectacle we know and love today.
This year, the Heavy Horse Village will be raising awareness of the End of Treatment Bells, set up by a true survivor with a mission to put bells on as many wards as she can, celebrating treatment milestones.
Come and meet these lovely animals and the teams that look after them. Learn about the breeds, their history and how they have evolved
There will even be a selection of carts on display within the heavy horse section and the amazing horse drawn fire engine!!
