After that we watched some medieval knights jousting, a dog display team, some birds of prey which were absolutely beautiful, and lastly a most entertaining and skilful performance by two collies rounding up ducks. Great fun.
There were also some wonderful show gardens, flower displays, huge vegetables (do they really taste good?) Here are some gold medal winners.
And where's Dame Edna Everage when you need her?
The show runs till Sunday21st August. I for one will be sure to visit next year too.
