THE CALLOW OILS TWO FENCE SHOW JUMPING CHALLENGE
The organisers of the Hanbury Countryside Show are delighted to announce the introduction of a new exciting competition. The Callow Oils Two Fence Show Jumping Challenge. This will be held in the NFU Mutual Main Arena at lunchtime on Saturday 6th July 2019. This is a first for Hanbury Show, having never hosted such a competition in the past.
Richard Heath from the Hanbury Countryside Show Society was quoted as saying ‘we are thrilled to be introducing the Two Fence Challenge and we are hugely grateful to Callow Oils for their kind support of the competition’.
James Callow from Callow Oils stated ‘Callow Oils are pleased to be supporting the Hanbury Countryside Show and sponsoring this excellent new competition, we look forward to presenting the prizes to the winners on July 6th’.
Local show jumper and Hanbury Show committee member Caroline Webley added ‘It is great that my local show has another top level show jumping class, I can’t wait to compete next year!’.
The winner of the Callow Oils Two Fence Show Jumping Challenge will walk away with £500! This makes the competition the most lucrative held at the Show. This challenge is a great spectacle and is sure to keep the audience captivated. It is hoped that up to twenty show jumpers will take part and it is possible that the competition may attract some big names from the show jumping world.

Hanbury Countryside Show has been granted Charitable Status!
We are delighted to announce that the Hanbury Countryside Show Society has been granted Charitable Status. The Society has always run the Show for charitable purposes and we hope this new status will assist us in furthering promotion of agriculture and rural industries. The Show is primarily run for the benefit of the general public; we aim to educate visitors about agriculture, food production, conservation and many related crafts and rural skills.
The Society will launch an educational bursary scheme later this year; its aim will be to encourage and assist learning related to agriculture and associated trades. Bursaries will be issued to students studying at College or University and will be awarded following an application process.
The Society will continue to make donations to the Midlands Air Ambulance; this important charity plays such a vital role in many rural and urban areas and the Show`s organising team wish to maintain a high level of support for many years to come.
The charity number for the Society is 1160102
