Henry the mechanical horse will be at the CLA Game Fair at Blenheim Palace in July.
A 15.2 mechanical black horse known as Henry will be visiting the CLA Game Fair at Blenheim Palace from the 18th to 20th of July.
Hoof, the participation brand for the British Equestrian Federation (BEF), escorts Henry around the country to let people give horse riding a try.
As well as a chance to have a go on Henry, visitors to the Game Fair will be able to see demonstrations of different equestrian sports; on Saturday 19 July the North Warwickshire Pony Club Branch will be darting around the main arena in their mounted games display, and Karen Bassett will be showing the power and agility required in carriage driving on Friday 18 July.
Dressage rider Maria Eilberg, eventer Charlotte Agnew and para-equestrian dressage rider Anne Dunham will be at the Game Fair Theatre on Sunday 20 July to answer any questions visitors may have about the different Olympic disciplines. The riders, who are all supported by the UK Sport National Lottery funded World Class Programme, will be giving the inside track on riding horses and chatting about the requirements in the different disciplines.
Hoof's celebrity ambassadors will also be attending the event to champion the sport, telling their own stories and encouraging spectators to get to their local riding school.
