A packed venue saw lots of really warm weather this year, punctuated by a disappointing Saturday when the heavens opened from Midday through to the following morning.
This 4-day event is held in a fabulous Show Centre with fantastic views, amenities and a very large capacity for visitors.

Apart from the competition element, Team Equihunter have also been putting the Equihunter Endurance through it’s paces and are happy to report that living in this fantastic home form home has been as comfortable as ever.
The on-board kitchen and bathroom facilities have been especially welcome during this long hot spell.
