But there was not a horse in site.
Because it was Quilt Exhibition at Uttoxeter, held at the rather lovely race course there.
And I had entered two pieces into the Innovative Embroidery class.
What I like about this little show is the fact that it has an embroider pavilion (yes - it really is a pavilion because it directly overlooks the racecourse.)
Anyway, I took a few photos.
"Sea at Spurn Point" - by Maggie Ready
"Fragments One and Two" - by Hazel Brewer
Fragments inspired by the disintegrating Regimental Colours of the Leicestershire Regiment and the Regimental Guidons from the late 1700s)
Sorry - I wasn't concentrating so I cannot tell you who did this.
Or this rather stunning clock (in a glass cabinet - the reflections from the glass adding to the photographic challenges!)
But Frieda Oxenham made this stunning quilt, which won Overall Champion.
Detail from Frieda's quilt - it glowed gold, but the artificial light did not pick that up so well.
A quilt in the exhibition which caught my eye - again I apologise to the make who I have not catalogued.
And finally three journal quilts by Janet Edgington that caught my eye, mixed media pieces from a workshop by Shelly Rhodes (an artist who I have not heard of before, but who I must look up!)
