Sun comes out for Burwarton Show

[slider_pro id=”5″]

After a damp burst that thankfully didn’t last long, the weather was once again kind to the organisers of the Burwarton Show. There was a superb turnout, with 1,900 entries across competitive classes including heavy and ridden horses, cattle, sheep and pigs, all of which came together to put on a spectacle for the 20,000 visitors who came along.

Mike Bradbury, in his second year as chairman, said, “Cattle and sheep classes were particularly well supported, with animals in the grand parade well deserving of their rosettes and cups.”

The shearing competition was again a hit with the audience, with some 500 sheep being required to keep the shearers busy. Keen riders enjoyed the horse classes, which took place throughout the day, with over 500 animals put through their paces.

The White Helmets Motorcycle Display Team of the Royal Signals gave a thrilling exhibition of skilled riding, while Bob Hogg’s Sheepdog Display provided a change in tempo.
