Heavy Horses at our 2013 Show


Heavy Horses in all their finery at the Melplash Agricultural Show are always a popular sight and are going to be even more so this year as visitors to the Show are going be able to enjoy a very rare treat.   As well as being able to see these magnificent horses in the Show classes, the Melplash Agricultural Society is very pleased to announce that they have arranged for local farmer, Randy Hiscock, to put together a main ring exhibition of heavy horses in both agricultural and trade turnouts.   Randy Hiscock with his Suffolk Punch heavy horses – an old English breed of draught horse always chestnut in colour – is a regular in the showing classes at the Melplash Show and other Shows around the country.  He owns one of the largest and oldest Suffolk studs outside the breed’s home county, at Donhead St Mary, Dorset
