Horses and livestock took centre stage with seven rings dedicated to show and hunting horses including several classes of Royal International Horse Society qualifiers.

The show also featured traditional fairground rides, a craft tent, a food hall, vintage farm machinery and classic cars.

Honorary Secretary Geoff Bailes said the event, helped by the weather, had been a huge success.

He said: “It was almost 100 percent show weather.

“There was a nice breeze so it wasn’t too hot for the livestock and for the horse exhibitors.

“There were a tremendous number of happy, smiling faces about.

“The food hall had a good day, the craft stalls had a good day, in fact many of them sold out of their products.,
