THE SHETLAND PONY GRAND NATIONAL
Liverpool is famous for hosting the most famous steeplechase in the World at Aintree – we have pleasure in bringing you our own version of that nail-biting race in miniature! Pint-sized jockeys on very feisty ponies will race their hearts out to be led into the winner’s enclosure. These Shetlands take their racing very seriously and travel all over the country performing at high profile shows…very high in ‘cute’ factor and a firm favourite for the kids!
ARENACROSS UK FREESTYLE MX CREW
The team from Arenacross UK are bringing us FMX. FMX, or Freestyle Motocross takes the sport of Motocross to another level with riders flying off a purpose built ramp with their bikes 40 feet in the air!
Due to the risky (some might even say downright crazy..) nature of the sport, freestylers are highly paid sporting stars who compete in year-round such as the X Games, Red Bull X-fighters & the Arenacross World Tour.
Alongside them laying down their best tricks and ‘whips’, which are guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seats…listen out for a cry of ‘TRAIN’ before they all hit the ramp in insanely close succession for a mind blowing display that will leave you in awe!!View Website
