A SPECTACULAR horse show where different acts ride their horses to a live Abba tribute band and other artists is set to be stunning event at the Grange Equestrian Centre on the outskirts of Okehampton.

This will be a unique opportunity for people to enjoy horses and riders moving in harmony; the aim being to bring Vienna with a twist to Devon!

It’s a show for all the family with shopping, a bar, fabulous street food vans and the opportunity to get up and personal with the horses and riders.

The founder, Senga Riches, will showcase her All Steps Formation riding team who will open the show.

The team is made up of eight dedicated riders with a wide range of breeds showing that formation riding is for everyone no matter what type of horse you have.
