The third horse and pony show was held by the Upwell Playing Field Committee which raised money for the ongoing works to the Pavillion changing rooms.

Ros Shorting, secretary of the committee, said: “Weather was perfect and we had 26 entries from local riders.

“There were all ages and all types of entries from miniature to shires.”In the inhand and ridden showing classes, judges were Mick Henfrey judging inhand and Carole Bartram judging ridden.
