The free event is set to kick off at 11am in the Horse Fair Field, where the famous Puck Fair Horse Fair is held each year.

The main event is the Pony Showing contest. People will bring their pony's, where an official IPS judge will adjudicate the event.

Other highlights of the free event are set to include; Show jumping, a pet show, a demonstration of kids doing tricks on pony's, a 2km hunter trial and a boucing castle. There will also be a Donkey Derby race which will be a sight to behold, if not just for the local rivalries.

Although this is set to be a fun event for all, there is a more serious element to it. With the news that St Joesph's Home in Killorglin is in need of funds, having been supported by the Pony Show for the past 15 years, there will be a collection at the gate.

Organiser Gene Evans is of no whims about the importance of this: "We've supported this home for the last 15 years but our fundraising is now more important than ever. The main thing is that people leave with a smile face and we raise a bit of money for St Joesph's," he added.
