Competitors galloped on to Upwell playing field for the village’s horse and pony show at the weekend.
Well-groomed horses and ponies strutted their stuff as money was raised for Upwell Playing Fields.
Competitors included Emma Roberts with her pony Dave, Hannah Lewis, Sophie Wills and Dusty and James Roberts with Diesel.
The in-hand showing started at 9.30am.
For this the horse or pony was walked around the ring with the handler on the outer side.
The horse or pony is always nearest to the judge during in-hand showing so that the judge always has a clear view.
Ros Shorting, organiser, said: “We were very pleased at the turnout and we raised a quite a bit for the playing fields which is always a good thing.
