Our Open Summer Show will be held on Saturday 1st June in the Dounby Showpark. You'll find a Schedule / Entry Form on the link above, and there are printed copies available at the Riding Centre and will be in the Dounby Pavilion for the West Mainland Event. The closing date is Tuesday 28th May.
This year it's a Showing Show with lots of Ridden and Inhand classes, and there is no restriction to how many classes you can enter - as long as you fit in with the class criteria. We're hoping that not running a WH will mean less stress for everyone trying to be in 3 rings at once, and will make for a more relaxed and enjoyable show.
We are also delighted to have been awarded a separate NPS Inhand Shetland Pony Championship, which means an extra two ponies can get the elusive Inhand Blair tickets! Not all "Shetland Pony People" will see this news though, so please let them know that they have their own Breed class at our Show and a chance of qualifying for the NPS Breed Championship at Blair in August.
We're hoping that by not running a WH it will mean less stress for everyone trying to be in 3 rings at once, and make it a more enjoyable and relaxed show for us all.
Helen Kirkness and her team is running the kitchen for Riding Centre funds. They'd appreciate donations of savoury and sweet things - if anyone is able to do a shift in the kitchen then let her know. They will also have a raffle - any donations of prizes would be grand.
And if anyone is able to help on the day, then please get in touch!
