A lovely Show this year, well organised by Tracy Maczka. We had beautiful weather and some faces from the past back to judge the Showing Classes. Many thanks to Freda Rogers and Helen Bell. Tivyside Riding Club kindly lent us their working hunter jumps, so we had sufficient equipment to run Clear Round all day, along with Showing, Working Hunter, Novelty Classes and Show Jumping.

A big thank you to all our judges, parents and older members who helped with the Show. Without your time and hard work, it would not be possible to run these fundraising events.
Also thanks to our Show sponsors, Clydey Cottages, Stable Corner Saddlery and Matthew Greenland Ltd.

Family Show 2015

A brand new schedule this year with lots of extra prizes on offer. All first prize winners in the showing classes recieved trophies, generously sponsered by “Mansel Davis and Son”. We also had beautiful sashes and rosettes for all our champions and reserves in showing, working hunter, and the showjumping kindly sponsored by “Potato Paradise”. There were also prizes for the novelty classes, donated by “Thermatex”. Entries were down this year- maybe the timing was a little late in the year as Cardigan Bay Riding Club’s Show the day before was quieter than they had expected. Although the show wasn’t as well attended as we had hoped, we still made a tidy profit, and everyone said it was a lovely show and how much they had enjoyed themselves.

Many thanks to our sponsors, judges and stewards, the Davies family for organising the schedule and the show, to Louise our course builder, Liz for doing the entries, Melaine for doing the raffle, Jane James who kept all of our judges fed, and to everyone else who helped set up,clear up and made donations of food and prizes.

Family Show by jane & Meg 2013

Probably one of the most successful shows we’ve had in recent years. The weather was good and competitors were out in force from the start. Thanks to Liz who had a busy day taking all the entries and also handed out lots of forms to potential new members. This year saw the return of Working Hunter classes which brought a bit more variety to the showing ring. Alongside this a busy show jumping ring, dressage and also handy pony and games- I think we provided something for everyone.

Many thanks to Wendy Finucane and her steward who did a fantastic job judging. Also to Elin and Ben for judging the show jumping. Thanks to Melanie who organised another good raffle and to Jo, Adam and Beth who helped her sell the tickets. Also thanks to Dawn our course builder, Sharon Warren our dressage judge and to everyone else who helped make the show a success.
