At the ActewAGL Royal Canberra Show you'll be able to wander amongst these artisans as they work and see their skills and techniques up close. It's an experience not to be missed.


Mounted Games

We're very excited to welcome back the NSW Branch of the Australian Mounted Games Association to the 2018 Royal Canberra Show! These talented riders and their ponies are sure to thrill the audience with their agility and speed as they demonstrate some of their most exciting games at high speed over a 100m track on the Main Arena. And if you're interested in learning how they do it, come and see them in where they'll break it down for you!
