Great results with a 5th in Hoys, 3rd First ridden,2nd junior ridden, 1st Ridden veteran then to the WHP ring to pick up 1st in the cradle stakes and 2nd open workers . Well worth the trip.
Just look at the size of this Lead Rein class that Tully & Avomlie Abby Flair won at The Big Horse & Pony Show, Bideford. Stevenstone & Torrington Farmers show, it was the duos first win and we think there may be many more to come! Thank you Liz Muglestone for sharing these fab photos.
Hot on the heels of a great breed show we have this fabulous news from Rachel Brightmore that Lotuspoint Cassius and Olivia Brightmore were HOYs mini M&M Champions yesterday at NPS area 4 !
Well done Olivia a well deserved HOYs ticket.
Sometimes its the smiles outside the ring that are just as important, thank you Carrie Cook.
"Thank you to everyone involved for a great breed show despite the weather. Well done to everyone that went and braved the elements.
I love this photo of Mabel as it sums up what it is all about, she smiled all the way (too young to compete this year).
Mabel was so chuffed to ride Team Hackpens, Stepley Danae back to the lorry from the stables despite the weather."
Henley and Cotmullion in the Nick of Time have done amazingly well at their first proper go at ridden showing today winning lead rein champion at Wombourne show. Henley had a little fall in the working hunter class but mum Lisa said " iv never seen anyone get up and get back on so quick with a huge smile on his face".
They won some beautiful trophies and ribbons but also the most wonderful prize donated by Zoe Snape, a lovely saddle pad with numnah and girth."
Many congratulations to Mary & Lucinda Davenport & team. To all the judges, stewards, competitors. The Breed Show at Malvern was fabulous & you even made today’s Daily Telegraph newspaper with this fab photo of Claudia Groves.
We know many of us just packed & ran after our classes at yesterday’s Breed Show but Equinepix photographers did an amazing job in that foul weather. So now you’ve hopefully dried out please sit down with a cuppa, enjoy & maybe just buy 1 or 2 or if you missed the show visit the gallery by clicking on the above photo and enjoy seeing all the competitors from the warm.

Meanwhile, Rowena Proven judged the performance ring. The three judges then came together to judge the Supreme Championship, where they chose the Merkisayre Stud’s home bred standard chestnut stallion, Merkisayre Kelvin. The Reserve Supreme went to Clothie Night Lightning, a black gelding bred by the Clothie Stud, Aberdeenshire and ridden by Emily Laurenson. The committee would like to thank Helen Budge for the use of the P.A. system; Joanna Sandison for making the lunch for the judges and stewards and the Rendall family for all their help setting up and dismantling the show field. A huge thank you to the hard working ring and gate stewards: Abigail Robertson, Melanie Henderson, Melody Goodlad, Susan Goodlad, Leighton Anderson, Rory Goodlad and Valila Stevenson. Thank you to our sponsors for continuing to support our show: Harbro, A. Jarmson, Steve Rendall and Anderson & Co. A special mention has to go to Helen Thomson, as without all her hard work and dedication, the show would not have gone on.
When showing is so much more than rosettes .
Bobbi Shepherd & Betltoy Rosetalon were Overall inhand Champion and then supreme of the show at Magpas.
More importantly & the reason Bobbi attend this particular show is because it’s in aid of MAGPAS East of England’s Air Ambulances & we cant think of a better reason to go showing. www.magpas.org.uk
When your 28 and not ready to retire Riccalton Flint you are a legend.
Flint I hear was a little put out about doing LR so added a few canter strides into his show the previous week, just to prove he’s still got it!!
But this week....
The Central Scotland Shetland Pony Group Show yesterday and the boy did good! Riccalton Flint was on his bestest behavior to pick up 3rd in the Coloured Gelding Class. 2nd in the Veteran Class and 2nd in the Lead Rein Class before going on to be Reserve Ridden Champion! What a total star this pony is and Champion! What a total star and has been all his life!
