Ayrshire Shetland Pony group had their Youngstock show affiliated to the SPSBS & GEMS on 27th November 2022 at Ayr Livestock Market. The day ran well with even the sun shining for exhibitors on the day. Classes were supported by good quality stock and members classes proved very popular with winners receiving Shetland Pony confectionary from the chocolate box (Shetland) and an array of newly sponsored silverware. Our Young handlers classes had a selection of goodies from the Chocolate Box to Shetland pony pin/badge to class winners, ASPG Gold medal to Champion Young handler to keep and the Marshalls memories Salver. Our Champions all had sponsored sashes with a range of chocolate gifts to ASPG neck scarfs. The many classes were judged amiably by Mr R S Pitcairn, Kirkintilloch with Overall Supreme going to Lynda Cochrane’s Gue Unst, a lightly campaigned 3yr old miniature colt being shown on only his 3rd outing. The very successful bay 3yr old standard colt Oldeworlde Vivaldi from Amy McConville added his Reserve Supreme title to his list of Championships for this year.
All the Ayrshire Shetland pony group shows and events will be run within the Ayrshire area but there are no area restrictions for membership, anyone can join.
