RIders had to brave the elements at the second Turbury Horse Show, Greetland.

Despite disappointing weather, competitors braved the elements to put on top- class performances.

Dawn Lumb, the show secretary, said she was thrilled with the turnout.

“We were worried that attendance would be down on last year when people opened their curtains in the morning and saw the clouds.

“But numbers were similar to last year, which, in the current economic climate, is great,” she said.

The show had two new classes – show- jumping and working hunter.

“The morning classes were well attended with competitors, judges and stewards obviously enjoying themselves,” said Dawn.

“Thanks to all the sponsors and officials who helped make the day such a success. It’s much appreciated.”

The next event at Turbury is the Show Cross Competition on Sunday September 25.
