The show was held at Trengilly Farm and this year's president was Nick Van-Den-Berg, a former show secretary and committee member,

The good weather provoked a strong competition in the BSJH jumping ring, and also the other three rings. There was also a lot of fun had by the younger competitors in the gymkhana during the afternoon.

Some of the Cury foxhounds were brought to the show and paraded by the huntsman and visitors were also able to get up close to the animals in the main ring.

Among the other attractions was a well supported fun dog show was judged by Paul Rule, of Falmouth, and a selection of vintage and classic vehicles which were paraded in the main ring. The oldest cars were a 1936 Austin 16 and a Morris Minor tourer, and the oldest tractor was a 1956 McCormick.
