Mr Senior said: “I have been to the show before quite a few times and my 17-year-old daughter is a massive horse riding fan so I shall be coming along with her this year. It’s an absolutely beautiful show jumping ring.”

And Mr Parcel said it would be his first time at the show so was looking forward to it.

Next week the YEP will give away five family tickets to the show, which takes place from July 11 to 13 in Harrogate.
