Another part of the recent County Show was seeing the Carriage Driving. ...firstly these parading through the crowds to the Ring where they were doing a demonstration...
The chosen Charity for this year's Show is
The Calvert Trust
which was great....I used to volunteer there for years helping with the
carriage driving and teaching disabled and able-bodied people to drive...
so you can imagine my delight to bump into a friend there who was
about to do a display in one of the Show Rings....
Nicky Chapman driving Hendrix
To anyone who knows carriage driving, you'll see that Nicky is sat on the near-side
(usually the carriage driver is on the off-side)...
However, with this type of driving the disabled person is considered
the 'Driver' and hence they are sat in the correct place, the 'off-side'
or right-hand side (like driving cars over here in the UK).
It was great meeting Nicky again - I'll be popping into the Calvert stables
soon to see them all over there....

Went along to the Devon Show on it's final day of three...
very busy there obviously being Saturday but
was well worth going to....
took pictures generally of various things happening
so I'll let the pictures do some of the talking...
from big horses to miniature horses
aren't these the cutest little four legs ever...
they aren't shetlands, but actually horses - just mini sized
these are waiting to enter the Ring
My next post will be of
carriage driving at the show.
