THIS year’s Frampton Country Fair promised another bumper show, and it definitely delivered.

The event on Sunday played host to more than 14,000 visitors.

Throughout the day there was a non-stop programme of entertainment in the main ring. Among the highlights this year was the amazing riding skills of Atkinson Action Horses, who have spent the past twenty years training horses and riders for film and television.

Other activities in the main ring included a falconry display, dog agility demonstrations, inter-hunt relay, hound parade and some serious competition among the tent pegging teams who galloped across the park aiming for 12-inch wooden stakes with their lances.

One of the exhibits, which has grown dramatically since its introduction at Frampton in 2000, is the Living Working Countryside.

This showcases rural skills, some of which over time have been in slow decline, but in recent years have seen a resurgence in interest .

The skills included hedge laying, dry stone walling, cider making, spinning and those of the blacksmith, farrier, and saddler.

There was also almost 400 trade stands on show.
