Gallery: Sun shines on Trinity Park for 143rd Woodbridge Horse Show
A sun-covered Trinity Park played host to the 143rd Woodbridge Horse Show today.
During the course of the show yesterday, hundreds of visitors watched riders take their breeds to the ring to perform in more than 100 classes.
Show secretary Penny Watts said: “The sun was shining, which was a good sign, and we had a good entry numbers.
“It has been a good day.
“There has been an excellent mix of classes.”
Those who went to the show saw riders of all ages take part in dressage, driving, showjumping and side saddle classes, as well as dog agility and farriery competitions.
The dog show, advertised as a fun show for visitors that had brought their four legged friends with them to the show, saw families get involved, with rosettes going to the winners.

Mrs Watts also said for the first time this year there was a ridden heavy horse show.
“We’ve had an excellent number of Suffolk Punches enter for the breed shows too.”
Many families sat around the rings watching the various shows while enjoying ice creams and fudge from the sellers at the venue, along with a cold drink in an attempt to remain cool.
Enthusiastic riders could also buy new equipment and clothing from sellers at the show.
Mrs Watts said: “It’s been excellent going, with a very nice atmosphere.”
“We’ve had very helpful staff,” she added.
A number of staff helped out during the day, as well as volunteers stewarding motorists to the right section and helping people make their way to the show safely.
