Novelty classes popular at Calgow

Despite the rain there was a good turnout of ponies, horses and riders for the weekly Calgow Equestrian show jumping competition on Tuesday night.

As well as the usual classes there were some new novelty classes that were popular, including X-poles for the parents, won by Dana Stewart on Sunny, and the runners and riders class, with some excellent clear rounds from those competitors on two feet instead of four! The winners were Georgie Barr on Fudge with mum Sarah showing an impressive turn of foot.

The league is now underway but still plenty time for newcomers to catch up. The end of season £100 draw is a good attraction and next week there will be a prize fund for the fastest over the X poles..... Come along and have a go!

Here are a selection of pictures by Eric Sloan.
