Heavenly Bedding – local equestrian and agricultural shows
We’re farmers ourselves and supply horse bedding to local farms, liveries, equine vets and of course to individual horse owners and riders. We like to attend local agricultural shows and also national equestrian shows where possible, to meet other suppliers and customers, new and old.
Most of the 2020 and 2021 shows were cancelled, but everything’s back on for 2022 and we look forward to taking part.
The Kelmarsh Show – 17th & 18th April 2022
The Kelmarsh Show took place over Easter weekend, at Kelmarsh Hall in Northamptonshire.
This was a fantastic event for all the family, including entertainment in the main arena, demonstrations, competitions, music, bars and places to eat – and free parking. There were also be hundreds of stalls selling gifts, homewares, clothing and accessories. The Kids Zone had lots to entertain the family, including face painting and balloon modelling.
We were delighted to be there – the first show for a while and the weather was excellent! In between welcoming visitors to our stand, where we were able to show examples of our high-quality horse bedding, we really enjoyed seeing the equine displays and the Red Devils parachute team, which you can see in our photos.
