Donkey Derby and Dog Show.

The Horley Lions annual Dog Show has been running now for a number of years and has been steadily growing in popularity. It incorporates Pedigree Classes, Fun Classes, Agility, a Scurry and Kennel Club Bronze Level Good Citizen Award.

In 2013 we decided to run a Donkey Derby and contacted Hunts Racing Donkeys from Godalming who provided the Donkeys. Hunts Racing Donkeys whose stables are regularly inspected by the RSPCA and  fully complies with all requirements and regulations regarding the stabling and transportation of animals.

When you attend the event you have plenty of opportunity for a flutter on the Tote as the event stages eight races each with seven donkeys. We obtain the jockeys from various riding schools and stables in the surrounding area so if you would like to take part let us know, there are however weight and age restrictions.

Two years ago the decision was made to combine these two events which proved very successful.

In addition there are donkey rides and stalls from both animal charities and local traders. It has become an enjoyable day out for families, be they dog owners or not.
