Well done to David Hodge & Julian Walters who had a very red first outing of the season at the Native Pony Magazine Native Pony Show in Wiltshire. The novice boys Blackertor Magneto took Shetland champion and then Overall Supreme In Hand while Sharptor Kinsman won the young stock class and took Reserve Breed Champion.
Shown here is Magneto who wears a bridle from our Inhand Awards Scheme Sponsor, Native Pony Bridles who are also donating a fabulous hand crafted, English leather Bridle or Filly Slip to the overall Points winner of the Inhand Scheme.

More news from the Breast in Show Charity show today where 30yr old stallion Hose Reynard (Sire: Hose Vanesto Dam: Wells Virol) owned by Kate Hampton won both the VHS and SSADL Area qualifier classes.
Kate said "Jamie is still in his full winter coat as he has to live out 24/7 as he can no longer eat hay, I've never done a VHS class before but the SSADL class was the strongest first round class we have ever done so we were delighted to win, although i think my jacket may need a trip to the dry cleaners to remove the hair before the next show!"
