Also taking to the ring is award-winning gun dog trainer Adrian Slater who will be demonstrating his skills for the crowds as well as hosting gun dog scurry tests on land and water.  With 35 years experience of training, judging, teaching and breeding gun dogs, Adrian is recognised as one of the best handlers in the UK, qualifying to run in the England Gun Dog Team for the past 10 years.
 
Another main arena highlight will be the fast-paced Mounted Games Association of Great Britain whose riders will compete on horseback in a series of tough challenges against the clock.
 
Families can join in the fun with their pet in a fun dog show starting at 9.30am each day.  Also a dog agility course, available for the novice to have-a-go and also those wishing to compete against the clock.
 
Taking place on both days, ferrets, as well as terriers and lurchers, will take part in fast-paced racing and shows organised by Alan Tyer, chairman of the Association of Lurcher Clubs.  Entry can be made on the day. Racing starts at 9am with showing starting at midday.
 
National clay pigeon shooting will also take place during the weekend and visitors to the fair will be able to put their trigger power to the test by taking part in various challenges from each discipline from beginners to advanced.
