It’s all systems go at Honley Show’s beautiful Farnley Tyas Showground for a rip-roaring event on Saturday (June 29) following last year’s successful return to the hilltop location.

There have been record entries in both horse sections, cattle and goats – and online ticket sales are very strong.

The layout has been revised to accommodate the revitalised horse sections and the very welcome return of The Kennel Club affiliated dog show after a six-year gap.

The heavy horses will be hosted on the main field close to the entrance and will also appear in the main ring for their championship classes so everyone will get a chance to see them.

There have already been a significant number of entries, including mare Cannon Hall Blossom and her foal Valentine as seen on Channel 5’s The Yorkshire Vet.

The light horse section is in its own dedicated area of the field where six rings will accommodate a vastly expanded number of sections ensuring there is something for all equine enthusiasts.

Both horse sections will accept entries on the day so there is still chance to come along and compete.



Honley Show is one of the best one-day agricultural shows in Yorkshire – competitions are held in most of the usual animal classes and handicrafts which sit alongside the familiar food and drink stalls and entertainments.

There are plenty of outdoor shopping opportunities in the trade stand areas with everything from jars of jam to new cars being sold.

Milk from the Hills are new for this year and will bring some entertaining interactivity with their stand.

Ian said: “I am very much looking forward to my first show as president on Saturday. Over the past year I have witnessed at close quarters the huge amount of effort that the volunteer committee put in to making this show the excellent event that it is.

“I know they have a fabulous show planned for this year and we’re really looking forward to seeing faces old and new so do come along.”
