SHOWJUMPING, heavy horses, dog agility displays and a donkey show were among the attractions that drew thousands of people to the Ellingham and Ringwood Show.

Main ring events including a falconry display and shire horses plus a marquee bulging with home-made produce were also popular at the family event at Somerley Park on Saturday.

Animals and their owners could take part in a fancy dress competition while younger visitors enjoyed getting up close to the animals at the petting zoo and the raptor and reptile marquee.

The traditional countryside event supports local and national charities including New Forest Citizens Advice Service and Ringwood Foodbank.
