The show featured:

  • Horse shows
  • Dog displays
  • Classic cars
  • Vintage Tractors
  • Birds of prey displays
  • Terrier Racing
  • Horse shoe-making contest
  • A selection of trade stands

The Terrier racing saw members of the public bring their dogs into the ring. Where the dogs chased after a stuffed toy being pulled along by a string.

The horse shows comprised of 10 classes. Where cash prizes between £5 – £25 were up for grabs for competing horses.

The birds of prey show contained Harris Hawks, Lanner Falcons, yellow-billed kites and a Peregrine Cross Lanner Falcon.

It was a great family-friendly day out, which was blessed with good weather. The show will return next year, and I would highly recommend attending.
