Panto Horse Race

Now into its seventh year, this entertaining and hard fought contest takes place down the Holt High Street ahead of the official switch on.

Watch on as fifteen+ horses bolt it down the high street for the chance to grab the esteemed @Sowerbys Cup. Competing ‘panto’ horses are a three-piece composition made up of two-part horse, one-part handler all sponsored by Holt traders. Check out a few images from past races below!
