A rainy Saturday morning did little to dampen enthusiasm for the Otago Taieri A&P Society show, with thousands of visitors pouring through the gates as the weather cleared.

A Royal Event, the show was held at the society showgrounds in Mosgiel and included equestrian events, dog trials, displays of farm animals and pets, top woodchoppers, excavators, highland games events, music, food, and more.

The Supreme Animal of the show was pony Ataahua Enchanting, owned by the Meehan family. The pony also won supreme beginner mount and supreme show pony.

The supreme saddle hunter pony was Leonardo, owned by Annabelle Peters, and supreme horse was Saliant HH, owned by Jess Beevis.

Dog trial champion was W. Nichol, with Matt, and champion main was A. Brensell with Speed.

Southern Rural Life went along to check out the action.
