Bruce Knight is a voice that is synonymous with the Robertson Show.

He has been an announcer at the event for the past 17 years.

He started out calling the trot races, and he’s been behind the mike ever since.

►Children came from across the Highlands and further to enter their best friends into the Robertson Pet Show.

A highlight was Tarly the camel, who came from Nowra with Christina, 10.

► Owners of smaller horses also have the chance to shine at the Robertson Show.

Miniature pony and horse classes are featured alongside the larger classes, and are a hit with those who like something smaller to enjoy.

Australian miniature ponies state delegate Lindy Cosgrove said she became involved with the breed after an accident left her unable to ride.

► About 2500 exhibits are proudly displayed at the Robertson Show pavilion.

Covering 26 sections, exhibits include art, jam, vegetable creations, homemade goodies and school contributions.

Pavilion chief steward Margaret Whatman has been in the role for the past three years, but has exhibited for more than 10 years.
