Thousands of eager visitors arrived at the Lowther Show over the weekend, which played host to another spectacular showcase of family entertainment, countryside living and sporting championships. A triumphant weekend at the popular Cumbrian attraction, the event welcomed in plenty of sporting competitions and qualifiers, including the Horse Driving Trials, the Lowther Hound Show, the Clay Shooting Festival and the Chudleys Gundog Championship.
Held inside the grounds of Lowther Castle, the historic estate welcomed big crowds over at the Horse Driving Trials with spectators able to watch all the action unfold at the Dressage, the fast and furious Obstacles and the Lowther Derby, which included a challenging mix of cones driving and marathon-style obstacles, taking place on the Sunday of the Show.
At the hub of the Lowther Show, the Realtree Main Arena presented visitors with a complete line-up of superb family entertainment which included falconry and Spanish horse wizardry with Jonathan Marshall, the ancient art of Falconry with Ye Olde Redtail Falconry, and keeping with the horse theme, the Fell Pony Society and The Pony Club UK.
Jerome Roberts, Operations Director at Countryman Fairs expresses his delight at the response this year’s Show has received. “The weekend’s Lowther Show has been a huge success and we have received such a positive response from so many people who have travelled far and wide to see what it’s all about. Having organised this event over the past six years, we understand the importance this event has on a local level and we are thrilled so many have captured the event in their hearts and now consider it their own. Each year we continue to develop and make each year bigger and better. Thank you to all those that made the weekend a superb success, we hope to see you again in 2018!”
