Show's double program keeps competitors on the move
THE Sydney Regional Spring Show was certainly buzzing with action.
Organizer Eliza Douglas said two events at the same Menangle Park location made for a busy schedule.
“We were approached by Minto Show Society to do two shows in one day and we thought it was a great way to get competitors out and about and chance to get their qualifications up,” she said.
“The show turned out to be a huge success and we have had lots of positive results from the competitors, judges and volunteers.”
Eliza said the emphasis was on the competitor.
“Sydney Regional wanted the fun side of showing to come back,” she said.
“We had giveaway prizes for our pre-entry competitors, offered entry on the day and every championship got a prize whether it was cash or vouchers from our very valued sponsors.”
The supreme awards went to the Hunter Horse of the Show Bloomfield Five Star exhibited by Danielle Beatie, the Open Horse of the Show was Regal Edition, exhibited by Emma Cox, and the Supreme Rider of the Show was Lucinda O'Brien on Stone Haven BB King.
The Supreme Led Australian Stock Horse of the Show was Ashkat Tias Destination exhibited by Annie Irwin and the Ridden ASH of the Show was Adelle Reflections, exhibited by Adelle Stud.
