New for 2023, the superb equestrian artist, Santí Serra will be a top Main Ring attraction with the fantastic ‘United Minds’ display.
Acclaimed as the ‘Spanish Horse Whisperer’, Santí will perform his mesmerising choreography act with his Arabic horses every day of the show.
The display is natural dressage, capturing the beauty of the horse’s movement, and the harmony between animal and man.
Santi has been working in shows around the world for fifteen years, and has attended International Shows such as Fieracavalli, Equitana, Dublin Horse Week, Olympia London, Longiness Los Angeles, Beziers, Longiness Hong Kong Master, Qatar, and now the Royal Welsh Show!
As the UK’s number one motorcycle display team, the Bolddog FMX team base their show around the world’s largest and most sophisticated mobile landing system.
The show features the UK’s top ranked freestyle motocross riders, incorporating the latest heart stopping tricks as usually only seen on TV. The team set the standard 15 years ago and now continues to push the boundaries of FMX and lead the way for all motorcycle display teams.
The team also provides an informative onboard commentary by the riders even talking to the crowd while performing a trick flying 35ft in the air.
Between displays the public are invited to the interactive stand where they can get a closer look at the bikes and meet the riders. A complete package to give value both on and off the machines.
The Falcons are the UK’s premier military parachute display team, based at RAF Brize Norton, Oxfordshire, they display at venues all over Britain and Europe throughout the year. They have performed many times for the Royal Family and heads of state and set records and introduced many exciting innovations into formation skydiving.
The Royal Air Force is responsible for training and supporting all UK Airborne Forces. As well as providing a distinctive demonstration of freefall and canopy skills during the display season, each Falcons Team member undertakes continual advanced training as Parachute Jumping Instructors in preparation for future employment in support of the Parachute Regiment, the Royal Marines and other specialist units.
One of the most popular parts of the display is the carousel, we hope you enjoy it!
(Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday only)
A farmer born and bred, Meirion has been around border collies all his life. He is the third generation of his family to be involved in the art of training, competing and demonstrating with his border collies all over the country.
Meirion appears regularly on TV and has been on three series of the very popular BBC programme ‘One Man and His Dog.’ He has been featured on many TV programmes including the BBC ‘Countryfile’, ‘The One Show’, SKY1 ‘Pet Nation’ and recently on the ‘Farmers Country Showdown’ and ‘Songs of Praise.’
Within his display Meirion will inform the process from having a pup to the skills and tips needed to train your sheepdog. The dogs used by Meirion are Border Collies by the names of Helen, Carlo, Sam, Jess & Megan and they will be guided around the sheep using a series of voice and whistle commands.
During the display Meirion will invite a member of the audience into the ring to have the opportunity of working one of his dogs around a small flock of sheep.
A firm favourite, the Tristar Carriage Driving team will be back to display in the Main Ring each day of the Show.
The team have added new horses, Armani and Unitas, two very experienced horses that have won every possible driving class in Holland. We are really looking forward watching the new additions this year!
Having competed in the Royal Windsor Horse Show last month, the team are looking forward to being back in the Royal Welsh Main Ring again this year. The Tristar horses will be stabled in the usual place, please feel free to pay them a visit during the show.
The Regimental Band of the Royal Welsh is one of the very few all-brass bands within British Army Music, drawing players from the South Wales region’s rich brass band heritage and culture to its ranks. All musicians are members of the Army Reserve and commit to the Band around their civilian occupations.
The Band has a versatility of style and repertoire both on the concert platform and on parade as a marching band. It is regularly seen throughout the principality providing a wide-range of public and ceremonial duties from Royal Gun salutes and freedom parades to its continued presence at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff where it performs to rugby fans worldwide.
The Band and Drums played a central role in national events following the passing of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II; providing musical support to the Proclamation of the new sovereign, for the first visit of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla to Wales, and also for the subsequent Coronation in May 2023.
As well as domestic performances, the Band and Drums have also travelled throughout Europe, Canada, and Australia. Their music has entertained audiences the World over at a number of military tattoos, including the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo in Canada, and at the ‘Musikfest der Bundeswehr’ International Military Tattoo in Düsseldorf, Germany.
