The in-hand rings are far too small for some of the classes - the coloureds were split but still had 20 in each class & no room to move resulting in a couple of near misses with ponies getting over excited!
Very wet yesterday & ground was slippy before it rained - hope it's better weather tomorrow.
Great day today , weather fab , just spoilt by the fact someone took our fylde numnah from our stable door , it does have our horses name written on it , so If anyone would like to put spirits numnah back on the stable door , we would be grateful .
Had a lovely time at Equifest as usual although did get a bit soggy judging yesterday!! My shoes are still soaked!
I had a phone call a few moments ago from a lady who is coming to look at foals on her way home to Somerset, to say she had just arrived on the showground with three ponies to find that the three duration stables she had booked were not available! Apparently there were 21 Shires with no stables either! Luckily I have managed to find her accommodation for the night with a local friend, but did feel sorry for her - poor girl didn't know what to do with her ponies! Amazing entries this year - more than ever I think!
update for today... georgia and sammy the sec a stallion once again got NOTHING lol but did best show ever! ... then ccragg and dougal 11th out of 27 in equifest highland champ... then georgia and poppy aka townend patience 4th in equifest ridden dales/fell championship out of 25 ... once again highest mare... SOOOOOO PROUD!!! .... relatively early finish at 3ish followed by bbq and wine!!!
ps we were judged today by Matthew Lawrence... and whilst I appreciate we got a good placing I would like to comment on what a lovely man he was... he watched every show from beginning to end... had a lovely pleasant cheery manner., and at the end went from first to last place to each competitor with feedback... thankyou!
Huge well done to my grandaughter Lilli and Waitwith Calypso for winning her section of the L/R Concours class. Led by my daughter Maria. So proud of you both. Many thanks to Nicki Stanier for making the fabulous outfit. xxx
