THOU­SANDS of peo­ple came to Rom­ney Marsh to see the Heavy Horse Show at the week­end. About 10,000 vis­i­tors flocked to Bren­zett for the show on Satur­day and Sun­day which saw 45 horses com­pete. On Satur­day the horses had to do farm work and tow equip­ment, sledges and logs. On Sun­day they took part in dres­sage and com­pe­ti­tions in­clud­ing one for the best turned out horse. Or­gan­iser Ray Brig­nall said: “It was a very suc­cess­ful week­end. “It was only the sec­ond time we have done this, al­though we hope to hold it next year.” Vis­i­tors were also able to browse stalls, see vin­tage trac­tors and en­ter the Bren­zett Aero­nau­ti­cal Mu­seum, de­spite a break-in there last week. Mr Brig­nall added: “A lot of peo­ple were curious about what had hap­pened but even though ir­re­place­able items have been taken we must carry on.”
