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.
Unfortunately most of the 2020 shows were cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have included the proposed dates for 2021 shows below.
NVEC – Newbold Verdon Equestrian Centre
Heavenly Bedding sponsored a series of events at the Newbold Verdon Indoor Arena, a purpose built competition and training centre on the B582 Leicestershire, from October 2019 to February 2020.
NVEC is a well respected local equestrian centre, with a range of facilities, including occasional clinics from Laurence Hunt.

Your Horse Live – 12th – 14th November 2021
Taking place over 3 days at Stoneleigh Park, “Your Horse Live” is a fantastic annual event for all horse lovers, with a full schedule of events including competitions, demonstrations and masterclasses from top equestrians, including a dressage masterclass with Charlotte Dujardin.
The last event was in 2019, when Heavenly Bedding was part of the retail Village – a great attraction in itself, with over 400 exhibitors supplying everything from jodhpurs and jackets to saddles, horse feeds and of course horse bedding.
Your Horse Live 2021 will take place 12th-14th November at Stoneleigh, keeping in line with COVID-19 measures in place.

Fillongley Show – Saturday 11th September 2021
The Fillongley Agricultural Society held their last annual show, celebrating 100 years, in 2019. With a wide range of horse classes and show jumping, this was a great family day out – despite the rain, which you can see below.
That’s one way to get people on to your stand!
We were also delighted to offer some bedding to a lovely duck, who seemed to enjoy using it.
The 2020 show was cancelled, but we’re delighted that the 2021 Fillongly show will take place on Saturday 11th September at the Heart of England Events Centre in Fillongley.

The Blaston Show – Sun 30th June 2019
The Blaston Show took place at Hallaton Road, Slawston on a lovely sunny day!. The show was really well attended with record visitor numbers, many of whom we were delighted to meet on our stand.
There was a lot going on, from tug of war and bale rolling and terrier racing. Other popular features included the equestrian classes, cattle classes, dog show and vintage tractor display. There were a wide range of trade stands (including Heavenly Bedding) and food outlets selling everything from burgers to beer, pizza to pies, plus a choice of fresh ice cream vans. A great family day out.
The 2020 and 2021 summer shows have unfortunately been cancelled. We look forward to seeing you at the next show, to take place either autumn 2021 or summer 2022.

The Kenilworth Show – Saturday 8th June 2019
The Kenilworth Show, organised by the Kenilworth & District Agricultural Society, at Stoneleigh Park, is an educational and fun day out! This year’s programme included quad bike displays, a sheep show, heavy horses and livestock parades amongst others.
Heavenly Bedding were there, with samples of our equine bedding on the stand – a great day despite the rain, and we hope to be back again next year.
The Kenilworth Show did not take place in 2020 and has been cancelled for 2021, so the next show is planned for Saturday June 4th 2022.

The Ashby Show – Sun 14th July 2019
The 104th annual Ashby Show took place at Cattows Farm at Heather in Leicestershire. We were there for the second year running and were delighted to have a wide range of visitors to our stand. As always, we received some great feedback on the quality of our horse bedding. There was something for everyone at the last Ashby Show, so if you weren’t there, you missed a treat!
Unfortunately the 2020 and 2021 shows have cancelled. The next Ashby Show will be held on Sunday 10th July 2022.
