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.

Hounds and Horses

Certainly a subject for debate, as it was on the show ground.

Lining up for competition.

The large one to the left of shot was the star of the show.

The jumping went ahead despite concerns on conditions.

Several quick, clear rounds went in.

Clear efforts all round this time.

And something very different.

The heavyweight workers.

Probably the highlights of the day – such giant creatures working in perfect harmony.
