The first show in the North of the UK attracted several new faces into the ring ! Marilyn Sweet is not exactly new to the ring - she has been show photographer for 35 years all across the UK, but this was her very time as a handler with a borrowed horse. We saw several people showing for the first time and thanks are due to last years winners of the California tickets, Anna Matthews and Jo Cooper for making the long journey up from the South. As is normal in the UK the Gelding classes were strong and we had by far the largest In Hand Trail Class we have yet had in the UK.
Best in Show Novice: Vivanchez BK by Vivegas and Caroline Anderson.
Best In Show Amateur. MG Vaquero Vervaldee with Simon Constable
Best in Show Experienced: Adaliya by Adawy with owner / breeder / handler Louisa Biles.
Trail In Hand Winner: Vivanchez BK by Vivegas and Caroline Anderson. (Pictured)

Hunter Pleasure Winner: Silver Latifah by Silver Lutfi ridden by Emma Gater of the UK
Thank you to Organiser and Photographer Marilyn Sweet and Team !
