Story: Shows and field days



Competitions for horses are a continuing attraction of country shows, ranging from best-paced and best-mannered ponies through to show-jumping. The jumping is normally held in the show-ring and attracts both experienced riders on horses and the young on ponies. This young rider is at the Amberley show in 2007.
