Gerard Naprous & the Devil’s Horsemen.
Gerard grew up in St.Cyr s/s Dourdan near Paris where from an early age he recognized a natural understanding and affinity with horses which enabled him to train them for any task.
30 years in the Film and Show Business industries, has won him respect as one of Europe’s leading Horse masters, Stuntmen and Stunt Co-ordinators.
His outstanding displays of horsemanship have featured in many box office and TV hits, such as Sharpe V., Merlin, Robin HoodÂ Prince of Thieves, Rob Roy, Black Beauty, Braveheart, The Odyssey and Willow. The countless Commercials and Pop Videos are all tackled with the same degree of professionalism. So admired is his skill in training horses that three separate TV documentaries have been made on the subject.
Bob Hogg is a member of the international sheepdog society who travels throughout the country with his team of working sheepdogs and has earned himself an excellent reputation for his professional and highly entertaining displays, in which the dogs work sheep, geese and ducks.
Come along and meet Bob as he shares his unique training methods its great fun for the children, as they are invited into the arena whilst the dogs work the ducks around an obstacle course, down a slide and into a pool. Bob has appeared on many television shows including “Date my Daughter” and the “House of Tiny Tearaways”.
Big Pete, the world’s only real monster truck, at 16ft tall and 12ft wide, weighs 7.5tons.
Jumping 15ft in the air is an impressive sight for any event, crushing anything in its path, along with theÂ Grim ReaperÂ monster truck.
Both trucks working at the same time are guaranteed to leave a lasting impression on the crowds and not your arena surface, with amusing and informative commentary from the driver throughout the show.
The Royal Artillery’s freefall parachute team will close the event, they will exit the aircraft from 1500ft-1200ft and carry out several formations whilst deploying coloured smoke, reaching speeds of up to 120mph.Â Â A great way to finish with a great day out.
