Wagoners Challenge

A day not to be missed as Royal Logistic Corps regiments from across the country come to Sledmere to take part in the multiple events of the Wagoners Challenge to see who will become the Wagoners Champions 2024!

This is the third year of the competition and is set to be bigger and better than ever! 150 Regiment Royal Logistic Corps have teamed up with the Museum of the Wagoners Special Reserve and Sledmere to create this hard fought competition to see who will be crowned Wagoners Champions 2024.

The Royal Logistic Corps are the soldiers in today’s army who have inherited the role of the men from the Wagoners Special Reserve who fought in WWI. The events in the competition will tell the story of the Wagoners and their journey from farms to the front. The challenges are designed to replicate the training associated with the Wagoners’ when the Unit was preparing for World War One in 1914, including Long Reining Horses, The Bale Challenge, Showing in Hand, Driving the General Service Wagon and Tug of War. Visitors will also get to hear music from 150 Regiment Band and to see the Khukuri Dance from the Queen’s Own Ghurkha Logistic Regiment. There will be a demonstration of the museum’s Horse Ambulance and there will be information stands, vehicles on display and exciting activities and inflatables for children. A day not to be missed!

With heavy horses from the Northern Heavy Horse Society and local horse owners and breeders - the event promises to be a spectacular occasion for all to enjoy!
