Heavy horses and jiving ponies will be among the attractions at this year’s Penistone Show.

The event takes place at the town showground on Saturday, September 14, from 8am.

Organiser Liz Walker said: “This year’s show is looking like one of the best.

“Our main entertainment is Jive Pony, the amazing stunt riding team. They have a spectacular double act of everything from Roman Riding to vaulting, and we can’t wait.

“They will alternate with Rotherham Rockets Flyball Team. Anyone who has yet to see the dog agility competition will be thrilled. Everyone enjoys it, particularly the unstoppable dogs.

“But we expect to have some incredible heavy horses.

“The very last Shire Horse Hiring Society in the country is coming to us with their annual show. Penistone is always keen to support rural traditions and this co-operative harks back to a time when Shire stallions were sent to stand in rural areas as a matter of course. Now they are few and far between.”

There are also crafts, sword dancing, horticulture, dog displays and showjumping.
