2013 Show Results

Our first group show of 2013 was held at the Kingfisher Equestrian centre Nr Castle Cary on Sunday 17th March. After a shaky start due to snow the sun eventually decided to show itself in the afternoon and the weather warmed up. After the very worrying morning due to the awful weather conditions we were very pleased that nearly everyone managed to get to the show and the rings had plenty of entries for our judges Mr T Bell and Miss Z Bell of Northern Ireland to judge. It was especially nice, and obvious to see that everyone had worked hard on their pony’s presentation even though the days leading up to the show had been bad and less than kind to all of us.

Our congratulations to all of the class winners and Championship winners – well done.

Wessex Group Summer Show - Sunday 19th August 2013

The weather was a bit shaky on the Saturday giving us high winds but Sunday brought the lovely warmth of the sun again and encouraged a brilliant amount of entries in all of the rings which was wonderful for the judges and for our spectators to watch. The sun welcomed our two judges who had driven a long way to be with us. They were kept very busy all day, Mrs E Young who judged the miniature ponies had very big classes and Mrs A Jones who judged the Standard ponies, ridden classes and Young Handlers was equally busy. It was another good day for the group and the members.

The young handler classes were full of enthusiastic well polished handlers all showing their ponies off and their skills, it is amazing how competitive these classes get.

After a full day they chose Champlers Verity from the Standard ring as their Supreme Champion and
Eiger Jupiter from the miniature ring as Reserve Supreme Champion, much to the delight of their owners.

Wessex Group Autumn Show - Sunday 27th October 2013

The group held its final show of the year at the Kingston Maurward College Equestrian centre at Dorchester. The Autumn show was another success and the weather supported us too, that is until the predicted heavy storms at the end of the day!

It was good to see a lot of new members attending the late show this year and an increasing amount of young handlers in the ring. We would like to say thank you to the parents and supporters of these and the ridden classes as we do understand that it can be a long and tiring day for the children and their ponies.

It was very pleasing and lovely to watch the younger members of the group enjoying themselves and putting so much hard work into their pony’s and the classes whatever their age or ability.

Unfortunately there can only be one winner in the ring, but they are all winners with their achievements and pony management.

Our judges for the day were Mr N Vale, who presided over the standard pony ring and Mr D Sykes, likewise in the miniature pony ring. At the end of the day they chose the standard pony Pankymoor Highlander as their Supreme Champion and Halstock Sea Spray from the miniature pony ring as their Reserve Supreme Champion.
