Poignant horseback display to remember World War 1 heroes

A poignant and dignified display will take place at this year’s Royal Cornwall Show to mark the 100-year anniversary of The Great War.

The Cavalry of Heroes will make their debut in the show’s main ring and will present their World War 1 Horses and Heroes show.

Marking the 100-year anniversary of World War One it will remember the role that the valiant horses and soldiers played in The Great War.

Professional riders will combine tricks and stunts on horseback with a great music score, a rousing sing-a-long and a final cavalry charge.

Described as “a magical blend of horsemanship and theatre” there will be two performances daily on the Friday and Saturday of the show.

This will be the only opportunity to see this limited-edition act, that will only be performed during the 2018 season, on your doorstep in Cornwall.

Set up by horse trainer, stunt rider and coachman Marc Lovatt, the Cavalry of Heroes provides quality horses, carriages, riders and coachmen for film, tv, events and live shows.

The real stars of the show are the horses such as majestic jet-black Friesian Stallion Asgard and his best friends Zorro and D’artagnon. They are joined by pure white Andalusian Stallion Curioso Maximus and stable mates Pegasus and Guinness along with spotty Appaloosa brothers Harry and Apollo.

The main ring entertainment line-up at the Royal Cornwall will have the usual mix of acts and events to provide something for everybody to enjoy.

Quad bike stunt performer The Kangaroo Kid, show favourites the RAF Falcons parachute team and the Devon & Cornwall Police dog display team will be joined by the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines (Thursday & Saturday) on the bill.

The Royal Cornwall Show takes place on Thursday 7th, Friday 8th and Saturday 9th June and full details can be found by visiting: www.royalcornwall.co.uk.
