South Western WPCA Bronze Rosette Foal Show Report

South Western WPCA Bronze Rosette Foal Show Report

Hywi The Enforcer

The first lorry rolled into the yard at 7.40am and they just kept coming and coming in a very long line after that! I really apologise to all the competitors as much as I can as I know myself how frustrating it is not being able to park! Anne and John Brice did the most magnificent and un-enviable job of parking the vehicles but what does one do when you run out of space? There was a quarter of an hour delay at the start of show due to the car parking situation. Lots of vehicles meant lots of entries and the classes were once again at this ever thriving show bursting with lovely ponies.

It was hard where to look as the quality of ponies in three running rings were full to bursting! Mr Peter De Rade (Zonneweide) had an abundance of A’s brimming with quality and giving the Bronze Medal to Mr Stewart Franklin’s Filly Foal Sarum Rose D’anjou shown by Katie Parry and Reserve going to Victoria Cordery’s Yearling Colt Uphill Arctic Fox. The B’s saw the Champion Courtdown Swift owned by Janet Hawkins but it was the Reserve Section B that came away with the Bronze Medal in the form of Cadlanvalley Golden Serenade owned by Alex Williams.

Mr Robert Howard (Moorcroft) equally had a hard choice of quality Cobs in front of him but gave the Bronze Rosette to the Section C Filly Foal Popsters Good Gracious owned by the Popsters Stud and shown by Justin Davis. Reserve Came from the 2/3 year old class Hywi The Enforcer owned and handled by Mr Roger Davies.

Quality D’s came running into the ring but the one running away with the Bronze Medal was Debbie Newman’s Section D stallion Coednewydd Orient Express followed closely by the 2nd placed mare from the same 4 year old and over class taking the Reserve Ridgehill Christine owned by Steve Patch & Kevin Howdle of the Ridgehill Stud.

Over to the Outdoor Arena and up to her eyes in huge classes was Mrs Pamela Cox (Cheritonridge). The Foal Champion was a lovely Dale Southerton Jasper owned by Helen Jeans and handled by her daughter Jess Talbot.

Youngstock Champion was the beautiful and successful Shybont Desirae In Mind shown by Marina Greenaway. This 3 year old then went on to beat a majority of the Champions to take Reserve Supreme In Hand of Show (one to look out for next year under saddle!) Adult Champion was the exquisite Kenilwood Wishing Wind owned and handled by Sam Dyer.

NPS Ridden Classes, again judged by Pam Cox from the Cheritonridge Stud were very well supported and saw competitors coming from far and wide to get their winter qualifying tickets. Glebedale Johnny Depp claimed the Novice Ridden ticket and then went on to do a lovely show in the Championship to take the Tri Colour. This beautiful example of a Section C was expertly ridden by Heidi Bennett being owned by the Popsters Stud. Reserve was the Section B Brookhall Maxi Million.
