The World Clydesdale Show 2022 is proud to announce the appointment of Martin Clunes as show President.

As well as being a writer, presenter and actor, Mr Clunes is also an incredibly keen heavy horse enthusiast who took over as President of The British Horse Society on 1 June 2011.

Martin owns two Clydesdale horses, Ronnie and Bruce, and knows first-hand the joy that these gentle giants can bring to owners, exhibitors and spectators alike at shows like this one.

Mr Clunes will be attending the 4 day long show at P&J Live in Aberdeen between the 20th and the 23rd of October this year.

‘I am really excited to be the President of this prestigious show. Like a lot of people, I get a gut punch when I see Clydesdale horses so to be present at a world show with horses from all over the world is just too exciting. I am also very happy to show my boys off and 1’m crossing my fingers that they behave themselves.’ said Martin Clunes.

‘We are so very proud that Martin Clunes as agreed to be the World Clydesdale Show 2022 President.’ said, Ailsa Clark, Chief Executive and Director, ‘His love of horses and dedication to the Clydesdale Breed is tremendous and to be able to welcome the President of the British Horse Society as our president is a great honour.’
