Hackneys and tours

We started our morning off with a tour of the show grounds, led by Jill. There are four show rings active at any one time plus a variety of warm up rings mixed in with about 200 vendors. The food vendors sell fish and chips, pork sandwiches and the like. There are also a variety of high end equestrian clothing vendors and of course, the horse “clothing” vendors. Saddles, bridles, and fly masks are plentiful here. Lots of shopping for everyone.

We watched several of the Hackney horse and pony classes before heading over to Windsor Castle for a quick look. We are planning on returning to both venues tomorrow. Enjoy the photos!

We found the hat vendor!
