As well as the usual sheep, cattle and goats on display there was also lively entertainment in the main ring throughout the day.

A highlight for many was the Black Rock Llama show, where the animals negotiated an obstacle course of jumps and tunnels in a bid to become agility champion.

The showjumping also kept the crowd around the main ring mesmerised.

After winning the event, Amy Clitheroe and her horse Carlo drew gasps from the audience, successfully taking on a wall at a height of 1.7m to gain the show’s record.

There was also a range of charity stalls, exhibits and games on the 20 acre recreation ground.
