John Philpott, general manager of Stonham Barns and the Mid Suffolk Showground, said: “It was absolutely fantastic! The weather has been kind to us once again and we had huge numbers of people along.

“The aim of the show is to give the people of mid Suffolk a really nice place to go for the weekend.

“It is also about educating people about heavy horses and it caters for a diverse range of people.”

As well as the many animals on display families could watch pony-back acrobatics or enjoy a tipple in the beer tent.

And now the fun has ended Mr Philpott said work would begin again as early as this week to prepare for next year's show.

He added: “It takes a lot of work to put something this big on. But it is absolutely worth it when you see everyone having such a good time.”
