Sally Ann Dale has gotta be doing something right. At the South E welsh pony and cob assn show at Gt Bookham, Champion and Reserve with Shetland ponies Cr. Fiddledydee annd Cr Hector ridden by Lucie Dale and Florence Taylor respectively.


 

Phil Tindale at Red Rose Show, first time at this show and the first time in years since I showed my own ponies, with Quakers Parsley in the stallion class and Loutin White Feather Kismet in the 2/3yo class.
Kismet 2nd in a class of 3 and behaved really well at her first show even more so as she has never been away from home, and she’s a cremello!!
Parsley came 2nd also in a strong class of mini stallions, and again was as good as gold albeit noisy at times.
Hopefully the start of a few shows this season, I’m now wiped out and ready for a week at work recovering. PT


         

There's so much more to this showing malarky. There's leading your clean shiny pony to the horse trailer, loading it up by yourself, then it's showtime! Imogen Davies and her trusty steed, Cr Airfrost at North Yorkshire County Show.

What a day to kick off our show season on the road at 04-30 this morning with the rain pouring down the whole way to Cumberland show. The trip was well worth the early start,Eiger Nijinsky first stallion, miniature champion and reserve supreme. Oxgang Bentley our homebred 3yr old colt was first in his class and junior champion and reserve miniature champion so we had a good day. Would like to thank Jen for showing and for making the early start. R.S.P.

Just wanted to say, as a man of Sussex, how delighted that HM the Queen, has given the title Duke and Duchess of Sussex to Prince Harry, and in so doing ennobling Meghan Markle his bride. Fantastic day, enjoyed it all, even the swerve toward American culture.

CASPIAN CHARITY SHOW. With so many group shows finishing it was lovely to attend a new friendly well organised show. 
It was an absolute credit to David Wright and his team, they worked hard all day to make sure the show ran smoothly with a great atmosphere. 
All the days proceeds went to The Macmillan Cancer support, pleased to be a part of it. JP

PARKLANDS SHOW                 RESULTS

A total of 67 entries took part in glorious weather. Our Judge Mrs. Elaine Lewis was in supreme form and finished the day completely unscathed. In spite of our traditional 10 am. start competitors were arriving before we got there at 8.15 so keen were they. Once again our hard core supporters were there in force and as always seems to be the case a surprising and most welcome number of new faces.

Entry numbers were up from last year which hopefully is a good sign for other shows around the country during 2018.  All in all, a ‘feel good day’ enjoyed by every one. For once I’m not going to single any one out as the results speak for them selves.

 We hope to see you all again in July for our farewell show which is FREE and  PRE ENTRY ONLY as it will be our thank you to you all for your support over the years. Please note class numbers will be limited.

Carrie Cozens news
As some are aware I broke my ankle in a freak accident in November but yesterday at the South West shetland pony group show just short of 6 months post fracture I took my niece in to her lead rein class, my aim was 2 weeks time but I managed it earlier and ready for our first county show in 2 weeks time. We were a right pair me with my ankle and Friday night she ended up in A&E with badly bruised Fingers, they are strapped together under modified gloves. 

I’m super proud of her as she did her young handlers class in the morning as well as her ridden in the afternoon

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It has been one of the wettest winters on record, those conditions are no excuse for what amounts to neglect with ponies coming through the winter, wrecked. I’m not going to comment on individuals who send ponies to sales in March in poor condition, nor ponies that have been bought back by their breeders, I'll leave that to facebook, not just Shetland ponies. it’s probably the worse time of year for any animal wintering out with little or no keep. I know studs whose grazing has been under feet of water all winter, yet their ponies have been accommodated, one way or another at home where they could be fed and tended. Spring has come and a successful foaling season is underway for them, well deserved.
We have sheep that would ordinarily winter out, so wet has it been here, they definitely would not have survived, for welfare reasons, they have taken up the stabling the ponies and the cobs would have enjoyed. The ponies lived through a bleak winter with no shelter, but they were worm and lice free AND WE FED THEM. I am pleased these ponies at sales have found new homes, and though they would have been cheap, let’s hope the new owners will see they have bargains and with a bit of TLC AND Dr Grass, their new owners will be rewarded with healthy happy ponies which will be a credit to them.

East Anglian Shetland Pony Group Spring Show Sunday 29th April    Results

So we had our first East Anglian Shetland pony group show last weekend of 2018. Oh my it was cold! But our panel judge Mrs Diane Randell and all the exhibitors braved the weather. The classes were still well supported despite losing a few entries due to the weather on Saturday.

We had a good selection of ponies forward in the youngstock, which saw Sally Buckley’s Sharptor Bellevue taking Junior Champion with Nicki Richards and Abbotsbury Bramble Taking the reserve.

We then moved on through the colour classes and senior classes which moved nicely on to the new studbook senior champion which was won by new member Susannah Muir, with Moonpenny Macavity owned and bred by Mrs M Bryant, Macavity also had gained overall best Gelding earlier in the day. The reserve senior champion was snapped up by Sally Buckley with Giersberg Justify.

We then moved straight on to the standard championship before we all turned in to ice lolly’s. After much deliberation we saw the junior champion Sharptor Bellevue pulled forward to take the top spot in the standards with the lovely big black gelding Moonpenny Macavity in as reserve standard champion.

It was now over to the miniatures which there was a lovely strong line up to choose from and it was Jason Burtons lovely Stallion Edern Dyfri crowned miniature champion with the equally lovely stallion Benston Harley with Angela Fox taking the reserve.

It was finally time for the main event the best in show. It was a lovely class to look at with all the champions displaying their sashes which made colourful end to the day. This saw Diane Randell pull forward the beautiful young filly Sharptor Bellevue to be crowned best in show and awarded the Roberta Brighton perpetual cup. Moonpenny Macavity was pulled forward as reserve best in show to add another huge rosette to his already large collection.

It was also the first show of the east Anglian GEMS championship which saw Jill Needham taking an early lead with two rosettes to her name, with Lorraine Norris and Jason Burton hot on her heels with one a piece.

Myself and Alan would like to thank everyone who came and supported our first show of 2018 we may run the shows but it is you guys the exhibitors that makes the show brilliant.
