Rosedale show – Saturday 17 August 2019

There was solid rain for the whole of the day before the show so there was much apprehension about access to the show field on the day itself. However, after a slow and slippery start, the sun came out, the ground dried up quickly and the crowds turned up to make the day a great success. Some images as a reminder of the day:

English Toy Terriers – now a rare breed.
A competitor in the Retrained Racehorse Class
Herding sheep into the show pens
Thewell has a lot to answer for! One of children’s pony classes
Guinea Pig Judging
A surprise from the Yorkshire Air Ambulance!
The ever popular heavy horse class.
Children’s Sports – Coach and Horses Racing
The start of one of the hound trails.
Finding Unicorns – the fancy dress pony class with this year’s Presidents of the Show, Mr and Mrs Farrow.
The Church Tea Tent raised £2,350 , the best ever, so thanks to Anthea Read and her team of helpers and bakers

A huge vote of thanks to Sam Dring and her Show Committee and to all the volunteers who set up the show field and to the stewards and other helpers on the day – it could not happen without your dedication to making the Show such a success.

It’s Showtime 2018!

The annual Rosedale Show was held on the Milburn Field on Saturday 18 August with good crowds enjoying the displays and events in breezy, sunny weather. Some scenes from around the ground:

Some fatherly advice before the judging.

Never too young to start.

A perennial favourite – the heavy horses judging.

In contrast, the smallest horses on show.

“I’ll have some of that, please.” At the church tea tent.

” Of course, it’s got a six and a half inch cylinder!”

For Your Eyes Only – the music, that is!

Man and Dog

Dogs everywhere – in and out of the judging ring.

More dogs – at the start of one of the hound trail races.

“That’s the winner!” In the ‘Any Continental Steer’ Class

The show could not be run each year without the sterling efforts of  Sam Dring and her committee and all the volunteers who help put up and take down the showground, who man the gates and direct traffic – heartfelt thanks to them all.

Also, a reminder of the Rosedale Flower Festival in aid of the ‘Save Rosedale Abbey Church Appeal’ which will be in the church of St Mary and St Lawrence from 15 to 23 September with a Harvest Service and Supper at 6.00pm on Saturday 22 September – all are very much welcome.

This a call for volunteers to help set-up the show arena and rings – please gather at the Milburn Field on Tuesday 14 August at 6.00pm. Bring some work gloves, pliers/multitools and a joyous heart!

Show Ring In Action

Without volunteer help, the show could not be staged every year and so please make an effort to spare some time to help next Tuesday evening on the Milburn Field.

Rosedale Show and Church Repair Appeal – 19 August 2017

Congratulations! Judging one of the sheep classes.

“Do you want water on those?”

Sunshine, showers and a blustery wind typified show day at Rosedale on Saturday 19 August, but as usual the crowds of locals and visitors came out and enjoyed the varied displays of horses and other livestock, exhibitions, trade stands and live music throughout the day.

Children’s Sports Day

Cattle Pimping!

“Thanks very much!” – Heavy Horse Judging

Much thanks to all on the Show Committee and to the volunteers who manned the gates and controlled the traffic to make the day such a success.

Thanks must also go to all those who donated to the Rosedale Abbey church repair appeal by buying the excellent calendars on offer or by giving directly or both. The grand sum of  £546.30 was raised for this vital cause.

The remaining calendars will be on sale shortly in the village between now and the church appeal sponsored coffee morning in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 2 September from 10.00 to 12.00 am – in the meantime, if you have any queries, please call 01751 417071 and leave a message.

Rosedale Show 2016

In spite of a couple of sharp showers in mid-afternoon, the Rosedale Show 2016 passed off well. Numbers were thought to be down on last year. mainly because of the adverse weather forecasts, but those who did come to show enjoyed the day. Some photos:

Rosedale Show 2015

Well, it turned out nice in the end! A bright if breezy day brought in the crowds to the Milburn Field today, Saturday 15 August, for Rosedale’s annual show, the ‘best little show’ in the county. Numbers of visitors is thought to be slightly up on last year’s attendance at around 3,750. However, there were fewer trade stands, but there were plenty of the ones that mattered!

A few souvenirs of the day:
