The HINDERWELL Horse and Agricultural Society will celebrate its 142nd show on Friday 5 August.

The show is renowned for its Cleveland Bay classes, a breed of horse favoured by the Queen for pulling her carriages, but also gives people the opportunity to show their skills and animals in a range of competitions.

Show secretary Jude Knight said: “The show is said to have started to solve an argument between two local men who couldn’t agree who had the best Cleveland Bay foal.

“After this inauspicious start, the show has grown from strength to strength, providing family entertainment and fun.”

The show also includes classes in heavy horses, pony breeding, ridden ponies, show jumping, and gymkhana.

Smaller animals also have the chance to shine with classes for sheep, ferrets, and a dog show.

There are more classes than ever in the ferret section and the sheep section this year includes a class for the best pet lamb shown by a youngster under 12.

There are also classes in vintage machinery, farm produce, garden produce, flowers, handicrafts confectionery, preserves and photography.

The nominated charity for this year is Raw Animal Rescue.

The show starts at 10am and runs until 6pm.

Car parking is free and admission is £4 for adults and £3 for children and senior citizens.

Family tickets cost £12.
