East Anglian Shetland Pony Group Spring Show
After two years we finally got to host our spring show and what was even better perfect weather! We were all set for what was a lovely busy show with over 140 entries across the two rings. Although entries were low in the young stock section Mr & Mrs James we delighted with the amount of ponies they had present. Mrs James taking the morning In hand classes where she took Jill Needham 2 year old miniature colt Toplarch Paddington as her Junior Champion with Tara Buckley and her standard black gelding Sharptor Adonis Reserve. While outside in the sunshine Mr James took the ridden classes which were well support with a lovely big lead rein class that Eliza Cowell and her black gelding Ulverscroft Harvest Buzzard won. We had the addition of some new ridden classes where Suellen Graves on Buxted Hi Felicity won the best turned out. He found his Champion from the winner of the open & novice ridden, Ottilie Willis on Giersbergs Justify and his Reserve Ridden Champion was Eliza Cowell on Ulverscroft Harvest Buzzard. After lunch we had a change of judges so Mrs James went out in the sunshine to oversee the fun and gymkhana which were great fun and lots of laughs and sweetie cones for everyone. Mr James was then taking over the in hand classes where he started off with the miniatures over 4 section, with Bwlchclawdd Little lady winning the Mini mare, Jill Needham’s Brackenlea Krusader the mini stallion and Julie’s lands Markisal Maxamillion the mini gelding. He then took Julie Lands, Bwlchclawdd Little Lady Miniature Champion and Brackenlea Krusader in the Reserve spot. Then he was on to the standards with Lorraine Benthams, Melland Queen of Scot’s winning the mare class and Sharptor Arion owned by Gary Davi’s-Moull the gelding class. He then moved on to the Standard Championship where the winner of home and island bred & solid colour was Marilyn Parkers bay mare Hackamore Poetic Justice who claimed victory with Melland Queen of Scot’s in Reserve. With only a couple of classes left to judge one of which was veteran saw Rebecca Ellis and her miniature stallion Brandeston Limerick win a large veteran class. Then time for the last of inhand championship where he was joined by his wife to judge the Senior Championship, which saw Hackamore poetic Justice owned and bred by Marilyn Parker take Senior Champion, with Julie Lands miniature mare Bwlchclawdd Little Lady in the Reserve spot. Then for the main event the BEST IN SHOW where the ridden champion had been patiently waiting, Mr & Mrs James then crowned Hackamore Poetic Justice as best in show to the delight of her breeder and owner Marilyn Parker. With Julie Lands, Bwlchclawdd Little lady in Reserve spot much to her delight. We would like to thank all of you who attended our show and made the day truly brilliant we can’t wait to see you all again at our very special 25th anniversary show on Sunday 25th September.

Cranford Fireman, bred by Gerry Hart, now with Mandy Shepherd and daughter Bea, who produces him. Turns out he loves jumping. He super athletic, scopey and getting braver every time out. We love him to bits and I think he’s going to be the next Carmilo Magician.

Pic shows – Fireman winning this class – BSPS Area 13b. Eleonora Ljungman is the jockey. She was also 2nd in the novice fr.GH replies, Mandy, if he comes anywhere near ‘Magician’ he’ll be fabulous.
