The very nice people over at Humberside Fire & Rescue have confirmed they will be attending on the day and in addition to the fire engines and biceps they usually bring, this year they will also be demonstrating (with the help of horse mannequins) their equine rescue procedures. I’m sure all horse owners will be keen to see how, if the worse happens, help is at hand, please come along and support them.
tickets are £1 for a book of 5, available on the day form the grey caravan or prior to the event form any committee member – £1st prize of £50 plus a range of other great prizes including a blanket from one of our sponsors Scarlet & Argent, wine, spirits and a range of other great country prizes. Raffle is drawn at 4pm on the day of the show. Contact Us for tickets.
A good read from Horse and Hound magazine on how competitors should behave in the show ring. We think this is especially important at local shows were the judges give up their time for free!
They will be on hand to give nutritional advice and samples of their feeds. Look out for them in the horse area.
We still have sponsorship opportunities available, the schedule has gone to print but you can still sponsor a class, donate a trophy, or simply make a donation in return for some advertising on our website and on the day – a great way to get your business noticed by lots of people!
A full report and results will follow later in the week, however the committee would like to say a big thank you to everyone who supported the show yesterday, from the competitors, the entrants in the dog show, the stall holders, the sponsors, everyone who kindly gives their time on the day to take entries, help with traffic control, the cadets who help with loads of different tasks, the stewards, the judges (who had a very long day!) the show jumping team, the runners of the dog show, the catering team in the VIP tent. Everyone who comes and makes the day what it is. The committee thoroughly enjoyed the day and hope that everyone else did too. Judging of the final class finished at 8.35pm, the field gate closed at 8.50pm – what a day!
