Gallery: Framlingham Horse Show sets new crowd and entries records

12:02 20 July 2014

Framlingham Horse Show -  one of the few shows in the county to offer Suffolk horse classes.

Framlingham Horse Show - one of the few shows in the county to offer Suffolk horse classes.

With more entries than ever before and double last year’s gate money, the 120th Framlingham Horse Show was hailed as a record-breaker by delighted organisers.

Set against the backdrop of medieval Framlingham Castle, the crowds were able to enjoy a full programme of light horse classes and affiliated jumping in warm summer sunshine.

One of the show’s great attractions is its classes for the hugely popular rare breed Suffolk Punch horses.

Show director Ms Sue Bell said all bar three of the Suffolk foals in the East of England were on show.

She said: “It was just fantastic to see the foals, absolutely amazing.

“Overall, it was the best show we have ever had with in the region of 250 entries, a record number.

“We were so lucky with the weather and it just kept getting warmer and warmer as the day went on. It was the first time in my six years as director that it had not rained at some point!”

She praised the hard work of the dedicated organising committee and the support of the show president Christopher Clarke.

The only blemish on the day was when a young woman rider fell and was taken to hospital and kept in overnight for observation.
