Wow! What an amazing showing season we had in 2010!
Our piebald colt, Wotknotts Buccaneer (then 2 years old) far exceeded our optimistic expectations, his success including:
Crealy (May) 1st & Res Junior Champion
Crealy (June) 1st & Junior Champion
International Shetland Show 1st & Res Junior Champion
Wessex Summer Show 1st
Crealy (Sept) 1st, Junior Champion & Reserve Supreme
Royal County of Berkshire Show (Newbury) 1st & Junior Champion
Wessex Autumn Show 1st & Junior Champion
These results saw Buccaneer top the table in the miniature 2 year old colt section of the Shetland-pony.com Miniature Shetland In-Hand League, and win the Wessex Group Best Junior Miniature Shetland award.
We were delighted too with the success of our yearlings during 2010 - Wotknotts Cedric, Wotknotts Annabelle and Wotknotts Selwyn.
It as always very rewarding to see ponies we have bred being loved and enjoyed, so we were overjoyed when Wotknotts Carruthers' young owner Shannon King rode him to success at the 2009 Wessex Shows to be named 'Wessex Best Ridden Pony'. Not bad for a miniature Shetland - Shannon even managed to achieve a rising trot! Unfortunately Shannon grew a bit and upgraded to a Standard Shetland for the 2010 ridden classes, but she continued to show Carruthers in-hand, gaining several 1st places.
