ALL aspects of agriculture have been celebrated at the 41st annual North Yorkshire County Show in a traditional display of animals, trades and crafts.

Cattle, sheep, poultry, rabbit and cavy – or guinea pig – shows were all staples of the grand event hosted each year for farming folk and families interested in country life.

Show jumping and light horse events, including hunter jumping and carriage driving were also shown off on Sunday at the Camp Hill Estate, near Bedale, North Yorkshire.

A main show ring included activities all day to display heavy horse work, cattle judging and an entertaining alpaca show for spectators of all ages.

Main acts also included Imps Motorcycle Display Team with a jaw-dropping routine of daredevil stunts shocking crowds from across the region.

More than 100 trade and craft stands were also set up across the estate, offering visitors the chance to buy everything from specialist agricultural machinery to homemade sweets, soaps and fashions.

A hound parade also drew large crowds during the day, followed by best dressed heavy horse and riding judging, culminating in a grand parade including class winners, classic cars and vintage tractors.

Photography, art, flower arranging and craft competitions were also part of the annual show.

It is the third year the event has been hosted by Robert and Jo Ropner of the Camp Hill Estate after formerly taking place at Otterington Hall near Northallerton.

Organisers had to carry out extra work on access points to the showfield after last week’s heavy rain.
