HUNDREDS of people turned out to enjoy a village show despite poor conditions.

Rhes Y Cae Horse Show took place on Saturday and offered a range of attractions and activities.

In addition to the horse show, visitors enjoyed sheepdog trials, a variety of competitions including cookery and floral arrangement and several stalls.

Brian Coleclough, the event's chairman, said unfortunately the bleak weather conditions on the day had affected turnout and the show had seen a noticeable drop in visitor numbers.

He wished to thank thank all those who had braved the elements to enjoy the show however, adding: "The weather has hit us, normally we'd be buzzing.

"This year we will suffer a loss, but we're hoping for better weather next year and we'd like to thank all those who have come along and had a good time."

He said the weather, and concerns over equine flu, may also explain why some of the competitors in the horse show had also decided not to attend.

In a statement on the show's Facebook page the following day, a spokesman added: "Thank to you to our judges who got wet and cold but carried on regardless.

"Thank you to all the helpers including personal friends, family and the young farmers.

"We are so very lucky to have you and are ever grateful.

"We will be back next year and let’s hope there won’t be anything to stand in our way."
