Usk Show 2020 - Behind the Scenes!
Our Main Ring Chief Steward (& Current Chairman), Keith Mayo, has explained a bit more about how complicated it can be to get everyone into the main ring when they should be and in the right order!
At Usk Show there is always so much to see and do!
Throughout the morning you can browse the stalls and trade stands, check out the livestock as they are prepared for exhibiting and watch the judging. From 9:00am, the Main Ring is used for judging the Retraining of Racehorse Amateur Ridden Series Qualifer and the beautiful costumes of the Side Saddle classes and Show Jumping starts from 9:00am.
Demonstrations start in the Countryside Ring from 10:30am. Our regular contributors from BLACK MOUNTAIN FALCONRY will again perform their afternoon display on Horseback. ROWAN WORKING HORSES, USK VALLEY WORKING GUNDOGS, AMAZING ALPACAS & WOOLASTON BASSETTS will also be returning. The FERGUSON CLUB and local Vintage tractor owners will also be displaying their magnificant machines.
Our Main Ring Attraction for 2021 is JAMIE SQUIBB & HIS MOTORCYCLE DISPLAY TEAM. Also in the Main Ring, we will have the traditional PARADE OF HOUNDS given by the CURRE AND LLANGIBBY HUNT, the GRAND PARADE OF LIVESTOCK & HORSES and a display from our VINTAGE SECTION. The ever popular MINI RUGBY 7s TOURNAMENT will also take part later in the afternoon with our junior players showing off their skills, with the help of Usk RFC, the Dragons & the WRU.
JUNKFISH will return to entertain the children. Their dedicated marquee gives little ones the chance to enjoy making a wonderful range of ‘make and take’ activities, all for FREE! They will also have outdoor activities on offer, including their famous JUNK BALL RUN.
Weather permitting, the finale in the Main Ring is a splendid HOT AIR BALLOON ASCENT. It’s a wonderful end to a wonderful day!
