THOU­SANDS of peo­ple and an­i­mals turned out at Wee­don last week for a hugely pop­u­lar agri­cul­tural show.

One of Buck­ing­hamshire’s best at­trac­tions, the Bucks County Show, held on Thurs­day August 31 saw sheep, cows, horses and a huge va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties en­ter­tain the im­mense crowds that head there.

This year or­gan­is­ers wel­comed back The House­hold Cavalry Mu­si­cal Ride, which is made up of the two most se­nior reg­i­ments of the Bri­tish Army, the Life Guards and the Blues and Roy­als.

They gave a demon­stra­tion of mil­i­tary equine skills, pre­ci­sion, in­cred­i­ble trust and eye-wa­ter­ing bursts of speed.

The ever pop­u­lar sheep show re­turned to pro­vide both hu­mor­ous and ed­u­ca­tional en­ter­tain­ment, fea­tur­ing ‘danc­ing sheep’.

There were 60 cat­tle classes, more than 30 sheep classes, fea­tur­ing some of the best live­stock in the coun­try, and around eighty equine classes which in­cluded qual­i­fiers for the Horse of the Year Show and the Royal In­ter­na­tional Horse Show.

Along with the an­i­mal demon­stra­tions, there was a home and gar­den mar­quee, hun­dreds of trade stands, shopping mar­quee, food hall, craft mar­quee and a coun­try­side arena.
