Biggest and Best Devon & Cornwall Christmas Equine Fair Under Starter's Orders!

The successful Devon & Cornwall Christmas Equine Fair returns by popular demand to Westpoint, Exeter, on Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 November - and organisers Contour Exhibitions & Events Limited are already billing it as the biggest and best so far.

The Fair, which has been running for seven years, is well established as a highlight in the South West's equine calendar. It is a great family day out, combining superb displays with advice from the experts, and an Equine Shopping Village with over 100 exhibitors to choose from.

Highlights from the Fair include:
" A breathtaking display from national show jumping champion Geoff Billington;
" Lessons on how to manage problem horses from expert Richard Maxwell;
" An exciting display from Amanda Saville of Chariots of Fire;
" An insight into the work of the International League for the Protection of Horses (ILPH). The ILPH will also be running its successful Crunch a Carrot fundraising campaign, where its representative will be selling off carrots to raise money for the charity. It was so popular last year that the carrots ran out, leading to a Devon wide search for sackfuls of the horses' favourite!
" The ever-popular Stallion Parade from local studs.

Sandra Turner, managing director of Contour Exhibitions & Events Limited, commented: "The Devon & Cornwall Christmas Equine Fair was the first equine fair we produced, and we are delighted that it has developed and grown to become such a popular event in the South West's equine calendar. We firmly believe that we have once again built on the success of the previous year by producing a bigger and better event than ever before, and one that represents a great family day out."
