The seventh annual Charity Horse Show was held in beautiful sunshine and a lovely day was had by all.

Competitors came from all over Wigtownshire and from as far afield as Dumfries to support the Club’s fundraising efforts for Stranraer Happy Hooves Riding for the Disabled Group and the Club.

Judge Tricia Fearn from Maybole had a busy day judging the Show Ponies, Show Hunter Ponies and Mountain and Moorland classes. Mrs Fearn chose small ridden show hunter pony and small ridden M&M class winner Huwil Blue Bobbie ridden by Tammy Campbell as her champion with Vallum Petrushka led by Angela McConnell as Reserve.

Judge Liz Boon from Lockerbie judged the young stock, coloureds and hunters selecting large hunter winner Nadine Scott and Overwater Evolution as her champion with young stock trophy winner Castlelodge Ibiza Sunset led by Mhairi McConnell as reserve.

The two judges joined forces to judge the Overall Best Turned Out and Supreme Championship.

The Overall Best Turned Out Trophy was awarded to Jenni Brooke and Tinkers Girl.

The Supreme Championship sash and Dr John Calvert Trophy was won by Overwater Evolution ridden by Nadine Scott and Reserve Supreme was awarded to Huwil Blue Bobbie ridden by Tammy Campbell.

After the showing was completed many people came forward to help build the showjumping course directed by Debs Millington and Mhairi Ross. The showjumping classes were busy with everyone vying for the many trophies on offer and parking and seating was at a premium.

The Pet Show was held mid-afternoon with local vet, Rhona Anderson, judging the entries. Miss Anderson selected the lovely spaniel puppy Ness, led by Louise Jamieson as her champion, with the Bracken, owned by Kate Griffiths as Reserve Champion.

Grateful thanks to all the judges, stewards and helpers who gave their time to make the day such a success, raising £1,300. Special thanks to Sheila, Shirley, Sue, Sheena, Marie, Daniel, Christa, Sheila, Gillian, Lynn, Sam, Debs and Mhairi.
