Royal Welsh Show by Catherine Evans :: 23rd July 2009

Yesterday we spent the day at the Royal Welsh Show at Builth Wells. Having visited the Royal a few years ago the Royal Welsh is infinitely better. There is definitely something for everyone. One of our favourite sections is the Forestry Area and it was wonderful to see heavy horses at work – the affinity between horse and human was amazing.

Another favourite is the Food Hall with lots of free samples to taste and quite a few purchases made- toffee waffles and toffee vodka amongst the favourites! We also watched the shear off between Wales and New Zealand (I have no idea how the scoring works!) and fortunately Wales won – much to the delight of the crowd. Despite the rain we had a great day and can’t wait to go back again next year.
