The standard at Cardigan’s annual Barley Saturday parade shone through, despite the rain.

Huge crowds braved the wet weather and lined the streets as the town was brought to a standstill for the unique event, which has gone from strength to strength.

In-hand classes and the supreme championship competition were held at the Penralltddu show field, before the horses and vintage vehicles paraded through the town on Saturday afternoon.

Barley Saturday is thought to have started in the 19th century, when it provided farmers with a chance to hire new staff and inspect prize stallions at the end of the barley seed sowing season.
