Bowood Game Fair

Tuesday, October 14

A few weekends ago Wiltshire held one of the last game and country fairs of the season. Bowood game fair. With shooting competitions, gun dog displays, wood craving and of course plenty of good food, it offers everything a good game fair should, on a smaller scale. There were great events happening all day, the mounted pony games being a particular funny one to watch! 

The local hunt made an appearance and gave the hounds a good run around the arena. Children were welcomed into the arena to meet the hounds (only once the huntsmen had dismounted and had their horses taken off to a corner, thank you new ridiculous health and safety measures!) and even raced them from one end to the other.  It always gives me goosebumps to watch the hunt, such a long standing countryside tradition that I simply can't wait to get my hands on a good hunter and join them 

We were lucky with the weather, which now seems like a distant memory, meaning we could meander around until our hearts content watching the shooting, eating bloody good sausages and peering into shops. It was a great end to the season and I can't wait for it all to start up again next spring!
