Crowds have turned out today (August 26) for Plymtree Country Fayre and Horse Show, which this year boasted a gymkhana. A fun-filled event for all the family, there have also been stalls, country competitions and children’s entertainment.
A number of classes in the horse show, which started this morning, were qualifiers for the South West Pony Association (SWPA) Championship.
Spectators have seen Pure Bred and Part Bred Arab classes, as well as a Best Turned Out in-hand class.
Prizes have been up for grabs in the flower and produce competitions, and pet owners have been encouraged to bring along their four-legged friends for a fun dog show. Best in Show in fruit and vegetables (section E) was Sue Tidball.
A display of classic vehicles and main ring events have been crowd pleasers – along with craft stalls, spectacular bouncy castles and slides, not to mention games.
Honiton Town Band and May Ann Nester and her Dancing Dogs have been among the entertainers. Hildsvin have been giving Viking/ Saxon re-enactment displays as well as running interactive ‘Kiddie Vike’ sessions
