Barley Saturday, 27th April

Pony

 

Since the 19th Century the last Saturday in April has been a big event in Cardigan. Barley Saturday saw farmers from surrounding area come to town to hire workers and to inspect stallions that are put out to stud.

These days the horses are the centre of attention. After judging, they are paraded through the town and crowds of people line the streets to see the spectacle.  There’s also now a parade of veteran tractors, cars, motorbikes and more.
