THERE was a feast of rural entertainment on offer this Bank Holiday Monday at the annual Thame Country Fair.

Crowds flocked to Thame Showground for the annual outdoors event boasting a host of countryside displays, exhibitions and activities.

The main arena saw falconry demonstrations, 'scurry trials' and the extreme sport of horse boarding – where a ‘boarder’ is pulled at speeds of up to 30mph around a series of obstacles by a galloping horse.

It wasn’t all full throttle, though, with a number of areas dedicated to specific countryside pursuits, including the ‘World of Dogs’ area featuring the Waggy Tails Fun Dog Show, terrier racing and pack hound demonstrations.

Youngsters were also able to get a closer look at some of the dogs during their down time as did six-year-old Charlotte Sturt who is pictured with fast asleep Bassett Hounds Forest and Spitfire.
