Stow on the Wold, Gloucestershire, United Kingdom

A young man shows off his prowess as he rides bare back past a friend in a wheelchair at the Stow Horse fair.

The Stow Horse fair has been held in May and October in the Cotswold town of Stow-on-the-Wold for 100s of years. Gypsy and travelling people from all over the country have been gathering in the small town since a charter for a sheep market was granted in 1476. Some voices from the fair sounded worried that the drop in those making the journey this year (2019) is due to worries about racist attitudes and even a sense of threat towards their community.
