THE 31st annual Foxham Horse show has been hailed a success by organisers as hundreds of people from far and wide attended.

Hundreds of horses and dogs took part in the wide variety of classes that took place, including a fancy dress competition, and even more visitors turned up to enjoy a fun-filled day out on Saturday (September 15).

There was an array of equestrian competitions including the shetland pony performance, dog shows and produce photography, cookery and craft competitions. Visitors could also enjoy the wide variety of food and crafts on sale.

Organiser Michelle Hanson, said: "We had a fantastic day and we were about 30 per cent up on entries fro last year, so all of the classes were very busy.

"We had some very strong contenders in the produce and craft show, in the art, photography and apple categories. There were also some lovely flowers.

"There were lots of people watching the different classes the whole place was positively buzzing, we had spectators all around the show ground.

"Wiltshire Fire and Rescue came with a fire engine and at one point it was bursting at the seams with children."

At least £6,000 has been raised for charities and local organisations, including Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Dorothy House, Christian Malford School and St John the Baptist Church
