THE DRIFFIELD SHOW MAIN RING

ATKINSONS ACTION HORSES

The Driffield Show team are excited to announce that East Riding’s own Atkinson Action Horses will be the main ring attraction in the Main Ring at the 2024 Driffield Show.  Wednesday, 17th July, 2024 will be the time to saddle up, strap in and hold on tight – as this fearless team of stunt riders will perform their unique display at the 148th  Driffield Show.

Atkinson Action Horses have spent the past twenty years training horses and riders for both film and tv. With credits from Poldark, Victoria, Peaky Blinders, Emmerdale and All Creatures Great and Small – it is guaranteed that this elite force has at some point invaded your tv screen.

Visitors to the Show are promised an astounding display of tricks and stunts normally reserved for only tv and the big screen and are advised to be prepared for ‘heart in your mouth’ demonstrations of astounding acrobatics.  The performance will also include a short but stunning section dedicated to the art of Liberty – displaying the seamless harmony between the horses and their on screen trainers. Ben Atkinson, who will be leading the team, also performs internationally, has trained horses in Dubai and has horse mastered on Bollywood films in India.  His displays, as well as the beautiful art of Liberty also include  Classical Dressage, Airs above the Ground and Cossack Trick Riding.
