Galloway Branch of the Pony Club and Calgow Equestrian held a joint Festive Show Jumping Competition on Sunday.

After a frosty start, Anne Jolly’s course thawed out to give everyone an enjoyable day in winter sunshine. Ponies were fresh and riders keen to have a go with Kate Soriani and DC Wendy Miller Smith in the judge’s caravan.

Zoe Wilson from Kirkcolm and her pony Busker were on winning form, taking home two first rosettes whilst the gorgeous Wispa, pictured, got a special rosette for a very festive outfit.

Well done to everyone who came along and took part.
