Join us on our 128th Anniversary

Wednesday 11th August 2021


Exmoor is a special place to many and the Show seeks to celebrate this. The finest of local horses, Exmoor Ponies and sheep are on show, together with superb crafts and trade stands. Local food and drink is available on site….and the very special local ice-cream.

The setting is truly breath-taking, looking north over the Exe Valley toward Dunkery and south to Molland Common via Withypool Hill.


Rather aptly, the show shares the field with an ancient burial mound, Herne’s Barrow. According to ancient myth, Herne the Hunter was a ghostly apparition who appeared sporting a set of stag’s horns growing from his head and rattling chains….….. We are not sure whether this barrow belongs to the same Herne or whether we would want it to!

All are welcome. If you love Exmoor and its people, even if you do not share their love of horses or livestock, the show is still worth a visit……why else would it have been going for over a century and a quarter!

We are very grateful to the Branton and Jowell families for allowing us to use their land for the show. That they welcome us year after year, whatever weather Exmoor blesses us with, and without any payment whatsoever, is extremely generous.
