8th August 2008 : Royal Welsh Show 2008

Nearly 500 photos from the show this year have been loaded and there are many more to come! Already loaded are more than 150 photos of the two Cob stallion classes - for us the highlight of the show. The sight of more than 40 stallions storming around the ring is a breathtaking and uniquely Welsh sight. It is hard, with a camera, to capture the drama and excitement of the event. The stallion pictured above, Hendrewen Mr Tom, may not have caught the eye of the judge but from the grandstand his extravagant action was unforgettable. Not quite as big, but just as impressive as he stormed round and round the ring, was Croniarth Keltic Starlight driven by Dave Thursting, pictured winning the Section A wagon class.

And Welsh Ponies and Cobs are not the only attraction at the show!
