Wagon Challenge Day

Who will be the Wagoner Champions?

A day not to miss as teams from 102 Brigade and other local Army units come together to determine who will be this years Wagoner Champions.

Come and show your support as teams take part in various challenges aimed at replicating and demonstrating the skills and disciplines associated with the training taken on by the Wagoners back in 1914. Expect to see everything from Tug of War to soldiers attempting to long rein heavy horses. All will be scored by experts to determine which unit are the 2023 Wagoner Champions.

As well as the team events there will be the Sledmere Shire Horses and horses from The Northern Heavy Horse Society. Other highlights include a historic horse drawn WW1 horse ambulance, Wolds Wagon, and General Service Wagon from the Royal Logistic Corps Heritage collection.

The event promises to be a spectacular occasion for all to enjoy, with demonstrations and plenty of activities for everybody to try, such as an inflatable assault course and bouncy castle.

Normal grounds and gardens admission applies.
