The 38th Heavy Horse Show And Country Fair took place in North Dorset today. At the Gillingham and Shaftesbury Show Ground.
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.
