What was on at the 2017 show?

We were excited to be joined by Jonathan Marshall and his incredible display of falconry and horsemanship in the Main Ring at this year's Dorset County Show. Jonathan appeared in the Main Ring twice on each day with his magnificent stallions and beautiful falcons.

Also in the Main Ring we were pleased to be joined by the majestic Coaches, fast paced Scurry Racing and impressive Show Jumping.

The Grand Parade of Livestock took place at 2.30pm on both days where visitors saw some of the finest cattle, sheep, goats and pigs that the South West has to show.
