GALLERY: Hundreds gather for 49th Gorefield Show

CROWDS flocked to the Gorefield Show on Saturday with horses and ponies once again proving to be the major attraction.

The 49th Gorefield Show contained an expanded pony show, now a qualifier for BSPS and PUK. The ponies were then closely followed by their larger relatives, the heavy horses, in events judged by Justin Cowles.

However, a host of other activities, including the return of the spectacular vintage carriage display, were enjoyed in fine sunshine. The rare sight of a hooded cabriolet, thought to be only one of the two vehicles in the country, also delighted spectators.

The afternoon of fun for all the family also included a novelty dog event, Mike Willis’ falconry display and a wide-range of side shows to keep visitors’ entertained throughout the day.
