The Royal Welsh Show will end later, and with it four days of competitions. Among last night's highlights were the harness trotting finals.

Harness trotting, which began in America, has been around in Wales for more than half a century. It has been a regular feature of the Royal Welsh Show since it moved to its current site at Llanelwedd in 1963.

The trotting season begins in April and goes on until September, with horses and jockeys racing each other at meets every weekend.

Andrew Hardwick, from this year's host county of Brecknock, has been driving trotting horses for twenty years. He is one of the sport's best known faces in Wales and has always competed at Llanelwedd.

On the last day of the show organisers will be hoping for another day of bumper visitor numbers. Yesterday the highest ever daily attendance was recorded - just short of 70,000.
