Plenty of attractions in the main ring
THE King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery, whose musical drive is one of the most spectacular displays of horsemanship in the world, and the famous JCB Dancing Diggers performing their repertoire of intricate manoeuvres, will be among the show’s main ring star attractions.
Another popular attraction, Chariots of Fire, the famous stunt carriage driving display team, is also back at the Royal Welsh after a break of several years.
