Horse-lovers flocked to a Norfolk museum to celebrate their hardworking nature.
Nearly 800 people turned out for the annual Horse Power event at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse, near Dereham, today.
The popular event saw 21 heavy horses visit the farm, four teams of horses plough the fields and seasonal tasks carried out, including harrowing, potato lifting and muck spreading.
There was a timber-hauling demonstration for the first time, and there was music and song from horseman Ray Hubbard and step dancing. Mr Hubbard also exhibited some of his extensive collection of horse memorabilia and horsemen told tales of working with breeds including Suffolk Punches, Shires, Percherons and Cobs.
Duty manager Phil Jones said: 'It's been a fantastic day. There have been lots and lots of people with nearly 800 people through our doors, which just shows how popular this event is. It's been a thoroughly wonderful day for people who love their horses.'
