It was a different sight entirely this week as horses and riders returned to the Great Yorkshire Showground amid glorious sunshine.

Horse of the Year Show qualifying equine classes, including this one for Dartmoor and Exmoor ponies, were rescheduled after bad weather forced the early closure of the show in July.

Show Director Bill Cowling said: “We’ve had lovely sunshine for most of the day which really lifted everyone’s spirits. Many of the competitors said how pleased they were to have had the opportunity to compete, with this summer’s wet weather causing the cancellation of so many shows.”
