The 109th Chagford Show, held last Thursday, reflected its strong agricultural tradition, and there were 50 different entrants for the livestock classes with more than 300 animals taking part from all over the county and some beyond.

Show secretary Sally Hutchings said the event went 'fabulously well'.

Entries were up on last year, all across the board. 'Not only have we had more entries but the standards of the classes have been very high,' she said.

There was also a strong entry of 230 horse competitors, with 400 entries and three arenas for show jumping and pony events.

And among those collecting a rosette was Sue Aylesbury-Rodgers (above) from North Bovey, whose two-year-old Dartmoor pony filly Wistman Midsummer Song, took a first place — the filly's first ever win.
