Joseph's Amazing Racing Camels
Camel racing is a huge sport in the Middle East and is becoming increasingly popular in the West. JAC has been thrilling audiences around Britain since 2000. From Cheltenham Racecourse to the Royal Cornwall Show to the Ballymena Steam Rally, these camels have been there and done that. The camels and the jockeys, specially trained by us, wear fantastically colourful outfits in Arab style to add pzazz to your event. As well as racing, the camels are on display all day so the public can meet these splendid animals and learn more about them.
Teams of two camels Red v Blue with players with extra long sticks and a bigger ball will battle it out in the arena. There will be a commentary designed to bring out the humour and the skill of the game, and the referee on the pitch will be keeping the ball and the camels going in the right direction. In between the two ten minutes chukkas, the crowd will be invited into the arena to stamp in the divots just like a real Polo match. There will be a short cup giving ceremony at the end of the match for the winning team.
Camel rides are proving to be very popular for parties and promotions. We use four camels, two are giving rides while two are at rest and on display. This ensures our camels are fresh and can provide rides for the duration of your event.
Joseph's Amazing Racing Pigs
Six rare breed pigs, ranging from Tamworths to Gloucester Old Spots to Saddlebacks to Berkshires to Oxford sandy and blacks, will fill your arena with their amusing antics. The handlers in country style outfits encourage them down the track by shaking a bucket of food and the pigs hurl themselves over the hurdles in their rush to be the first to the bucket ! This is arena entertainment at its best and if you don't have an arena we can set up on grass anywhere.
Imagine the excitement of having a living Nativity at your Christmas event. The Three Kings and their Camels will lead a magnificent procession and then be on display The Camels are led by Shepherds and ridden by Kings bearing their gifts.
