Alongside the machines were some heavy working horses, with ploughing exhibitions by some of the vintage tractors as well as the horses.

Away from exhibitions, people could take around the show on a vintage tractor and trailer and go inside a craft tent full of stalls, selling everything from handcrafted greeting cards to tractor parts.
