Atkinson Action Horses set to return to 2022 Driffield Show

Organisers of this year’s Driffield Show have confirmed that Atkinson Action Horses will be making a welcome return to the event as the main ring entertainment.

Atkinson Action Horses, based in Eastrington, have spent more than 20 years training horses and riders for both film and TV.

With credits from Poldark, Victoria, Peaky Blinders, The Living and the Dead and Hippopotamus – visitors are bound to have seen this elite force in action on their TV screen.

The equine stunt performers last appeared at the Driffield Show in 2017 when they wowed the crowd with their exciting stunts and performance and visitors to next year’s Show are promised an astounding display of tricks and stunts and are advised to be prepared for ‘heart in your mouth’ demonstrations of astounding acrobatics.

The performance will also include a stunning section dedicated to the art of Liberty – displaying the seamless harmony between the horses and their on-screen trainers.
