Heavy Horse Show

Rob is involved in running a Heavy Horse & Rural Crafts Show. It’s one of our local Lions clubs main fundraisers of the year and a lovely day. I look forward to it every year. We’ve seen it grow from a tiny event to a relatively large one but it still is small enough to feel personal and idiosyncratic. It reminds me of the country fairs I went to as a child. There are various heavy horse showing competitions, ploughing matches, birds of prey displays, craft stalls, yarn to buy, cakes to eat, donkey rides, vintage cars, something for everyone. The only downside is that it is always held on the first Sunday in September and so also feels like a marker for the end of Summer and beginning of Autumn. It marks the change in season for me. It certainly feels autumnal tonight with the lights and candles on, glowing against the dark outside as I haven’t got into the habit of drawing the curtains yet.
