Festive fun and seasonal good spirits were evident throughout December at Laurel View, but particularly at the Christmas Cracker Show.

The obstacle course had been tinselled by Santa and various eager elves, but it didn’t prove too distracting for the eager competitors and their steeds.

Some of the show jumps could have been confused for Christmas trees with the amount of parcels, tinsel and baubles adorning them.

Next fun show on the Laurel View 2019 calendar will be the Easter Show on 28th April, which will only be a hop, skip and a jump away.
