Ma­jes­tic and mar­vel­lous

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - BUSINESS -

POL­ISHED and buffed’ horses tak­ing part in gin com­pe­ti­tions isn’t the grim pre­lude to tales of a night out. In­stead nearly 600 peo­ple turned out to see a heavy horse show at The Chiltern Open Air Mu­seum, New­land Park, on Sun­day, June 21.

Mu­seum di­rec­tor Sue Shave said: “It was great, it was ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic.”

She added: “The horses were pol­ished, buffed and groomed to a won­der­ful de­gree.”

Demon­stra­tions from the mu­seum’s horses, along with a va­ri­ety of other breeds, kept the

‘ at­ten­dees en­ter­tained.

Ms Shave said: “The fig­ures speak for them­selves. More peo­ple than ev­ery came to the show this year and we were de­lighted, and de­lighted that peo­ple ap­pre­ci­ated it.”

She added: “What our events do is show our horses work­ing, which is some­thing that visi­tors can’t re­ally get in too many other lo­ca­tions in other parts of the county. To have such a show, such a dis­play, hav­ing horses put through their paces - to be able to come and see that in amongst our his­toric build­ings is pretty unique.”
