Travelers Get Ready For Appleby Horse Fair
 By Winniefield Park   •   16th Jun 2019   •   1,475 views   •   1 comments


Appleby Fair, a somewhat controversial gathering of horse loving folk, Travelers and Gypsies, runs during the month of June. This annual event takes place in Appleby-in-Westmorland in Cumbria County, Britain. The event attracts about 10,000 participants with about 1000 caravans (motorized and horse drawn), and about 30,000 tourists. Appleby Horse Fair includes horse displays, auctions, buskers, market stalls and music.

The event is a loosely organized gathering, although there is some coordination with the local authorities and the RSPCA. During the fair, roadside signs remind people to use caution driving near the horses as the roads are used by a variety of horses and vehicles being shown off and many are horses tethered by the roadside. Overcrowding has been a problem in the past, and local authorities have taken measures to keep everyone safer this year. The days leading up to the fair are busy, and locals and tourists using the roads need to use caution while enjoying the spectacle.

Minus the odd bad egg, this is a great fair to see. The horses are washed in the river and greats to watch.
