Heavy horses were the big stars of the spectacular 37th annual Crowland Show yesterday (Saturday).
Organisers were celebrating a huge turnout of mothers and foals in the heavy horse group with around a dozen pairs entering the main arena.
Show chairman Tom Henfrey said: “You don’t even see that at county level. I show horses all over the country.”
There were scores of entries across all of the horse classes, more than 100 dogs entered the dog show, run for the first-time this year by Crowland-based Mucky Pups, and Snowden Field was filled with attractions such as classic cars and tractors, fairground rides, games, stalls and a WI exhibition marquee where a variety of crafts were demonstrated.
Show vice-chairman Helen Turpin said the event is organised by an eight-strong committee, but it couldn’t go ahead without the team of 35 to 40 volunteers.
She said: “They are fantastic.”
Brilliant summer sunshine also brought out the crowds and the turnout is expected to be the best for some years.
