ONE of the most colourful spectaculars of carriage driving will take place on Easter Monday this year, April 1, at the South of England Centre, Ardingly, West Sussex.
The London Harness Horse Parade is steeped in tradition and offers spectators a glimpse into a world gone by and for those participating, a chance to showw off their best turnouts as well as to meet up with friends and fellow enthusiasts.
It is an amalgamation of two historic events- the London Cart Horse Parade, which was founded in 1885, and the London Van Horse Parade, which was founded in 1904.
There will be a new award this year- The Worshipful have not entered the London Harness Horse Parade within the last five years.
This will be determined by the Parade Secretary’s records of entries based on the exhibitor and not the animal(s) or vehicle.
All entries which qualify will receive a special rosette and a copy of the Centenary History Book “Parade”, in addition to any other prizes. Only entries that come forward for judging at the parade will be eligible for this award.
The first 12 eligible entries will receive a refund of £12 towards their entry fee.
