Usk Show: Horses Galore
First of a few photo blogs to work through from recent weeks. The Usk agricultural show really stood out this year, not just for the excellent weather and impressive attendance, but largely for the organisers getting the show going at all this year. Severe rainfall in the build up to the show had put it at risk, but such is the value of this cultural contribution to the local economy, that 24 hour a day efforts were undertaken to make certain that the show went ahead.
A regular staple of the show, and always a crowd favorite, are the wealth of prize equines on display, and here are just a small sample of those to compete this year.
