HORSE riders using lances, swords and guns will dazzle the crowds at this year’s Bicester and Finmere Show.

The British Tentpegging Association will demonstrate their skills at the Sunday’s event.

Top class showjumping, as well as high jump competitions, a horse show and dog show will all feature over the weekend.

The will also be donkey rides, more than 50 stalls, cream teas and a performance by Bletchingdon Silver Band.

The show, which takes place at the Bicester Show Ground, is run by a group of volunteers. It will raise money for spinal cord injuries charity The Back Up Trust and Spinal Research.

The show started in 1960 to raise funds for local 17-year-old Sally Haynes, who had been paralysed in a point-to-point fall.

Tickets cost £7 per adults and under-16s go free.
