Great Yorkshire Show comes back brighter

2012 was a tough year for the Great Yorkshire Show due to the wettest summer on record. For 2013 the organisers were taking no chances and spent an extra £500,000 on ‘weather-proofing’ the site, however the weather could not have been more different to that of last year, with wonderful sunshine beating down and temperatures reaching into the 30’s, it felt as though Summer had finally arrived.

There was a great atmosphere in the Great Yorkshire Showground- 9th - 11th July 2013 with official figures stating 134,837 people passed through the gates over the course of the three day event, which was close to the all time record. There were some fantastic looking animals showing (many looking very dapper in assorted Ritchey™ tags) with fierce competition for the top plaudits.

The Ritchey™ team were present in force for our home town show, with a wide array of products for people to get their hands on. These included samples from our recently launched Equine, Vet & Pet Grooming range such as; Oster Horse Grooming Kits and the ever popular Kerbl Contasnta4 horse clippers, see the complete range here.

Also on the stand we had a fantastic selection of PEL® electric fencing products, including; PEL® 415i Unigizer, PEL® 836R Energizer and the PEL® 702S Solar Energizer. You can see our full range of PEL® products by clicking here, or join us at the Royal Welsh Show- 22nd – 25th, Llanelwedd, Wales, where we will have even more of the range on display.
