Took a trip along to the Duncombe Park Country Fair in Helmsley today for a few hours. Set in the grounds of one of Yorkshire’s most historic houses and estates this annual one-day event which was formed in 1982 celebrates all aspects of the countryside and is billed as the original country fair of Yorkshire.
On the list of things to see today were the hounds that were brought in from various hunts around the region and from across the country and which were shown in one of the arenas as well as a small selection that followed a tail across the fields. The pony and horse events of course were a regular feature as well as archery, clowns, the riding skills of the Equestrian Theatre Scotland, fly-fishing and loads more all set in the spectacular grounds of the park. So check it out next year you won’t be disappointed….
Here’s a few from this morning:
