Entertainment for All Ages

This event is crafted with your entire family in mind. There are thrilling horse displays, cute Shetland ponies, and even mounted games, offering endless entertainment for the kids. Food and drinks will be readily available to keep everyone energized throughout the day.

Lucinda - The Ugly Sister

Keep your eyes peeled for a special guest appearance by Lucinda, the Ugly Sister. She's ready to spill the beans on all her horsey pals and, of course, to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Educational Highlights

We've got educational segments too. Witness the fascinating Reiki demonstration by Pete of Gallop Equine and gain insights from Amanda from Posturide. Also, prepare to be wowed by the Dartmoor Hill Ponies' exciting mounted games display, guided by special guest team captains from Hitts Barton Equestrian - all likely under the watchful eye of Lucinda.

Equine Spectacles

Marvel at the All-Steps Formation Riding display team's stunning light show, fresh from their Horsemanship Showcase. Michael V Smith and his magnificent Lusitano stallion will leave you in awe of their trust and connection. Rebecca Harris will join us with her horse Mushy, performing in Liberty style, a true spectacle of riding without a bridle or saddle.

Shetland Pony Fun

We've got an entire crew of Shetland Ponies from Munchkins Miniature Shetland Rescue. Perhaps you'll be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Bert and Poppet, who tied the knot in September (we're certain Lucinda has something to say about that).

Fun for Everyone

There's a plethora of free activities, from a seek-and-find trail with a prize for the highest score, to hook-a-duck and Christmas decoration making. Ever tried your hand at icing your very own Christmas biscuit? We'd love to see your ponies - bring them along and add their photos to our best-dressed pony noticeboard. Don't forget to dress up Dad, as there will be prizes for the most festively attired father!

All Steps Formation Riding

5.0 Bicton College, United Kingdom

Formation riding - it's like synchronised swimming only with horses.


All-Steps Formation was formed in 2017 by our Founder, Senga Riches. We are a 12 strong demonstration team, based in Devon, who travel the country performing in shows in our trademark navy blue tails and white breeches. Our aim is to bring formation riding to new audiences with our demonstrations and show that it is a discipline for everyone, no matter the size or breed of your horse. Our team horses range from a 14.1 Connie Cross to a 17.3 Irish Sports Horse who all ride together to music in harmony, producing a beautiful equine ballet.    


We also have a demonstration based in Surrey, headed up by Abby Long, made up of six riders. They have been training together for about a year and have another two members in the ranks training up to become demo riders.  The Surrey team epitomises the All-Steps ethos that formation riding is for everyone ranging from a 14.3 native pony to a 17.0 ex-event horse.
