Abingdon Horse Show 2009

Rye Farm Meadow, by the River Thames, was filling up with horse boxes from early morning.

By afternoon the clouds were gone and there was very little shade for the horses.

This annual event has something for all horse enthusiasts: Show Jumping, Ridden and In-Hand Showing, Fun Children's Ring, Fancy Dress.

Watching to see whether the horses can do a clear round is also fairly interesting to people like me who wouldn't know a Hock from a Fetlock.

NB: You can see the Old Gaol in the back ground here just to prove it really is Abingdon and not Blenheim
