THE MIDLANDS’ LARGEST & OLDEST ONE DAY AGRICULTURAL SHOW

Canwell Show 2018

Sponsored By

2018 SHOWJUMPING CLASSES

It is with much regret and disappointment that due to the prolonged spell of dry weather we have been experiencing and the absence of any significant rainfall predicted by the long range weather forecast,  the Society has had no alternative other than to cancel this year’s Show Jumping events at Canwell Show as we are unable to provide a safe and suitable ground upon which to jump.

We are extremely sorry for any disappointment this may cause, but the safety and wellbeing of all horses and riders at Canwell Show is of paramount importance to the Society and this is behind its decision.

The Show Jumping events will return in 2019.
