Chipping Show and Fell Race

This show has a real community feel to it from the kids egg and spoon race, sheep racing, the dog with the friendliest face to the 12k fell race up to Paddy’s Pole and back to the show field.

Chipping Show-12

One of the highlights of the show – the runners (the sheep) and the riders (the Teddy Bears)

With my usual eye for a winner my bet went on number 4 who managed to get his head stuck in the fence during the race!
