We were very lucky to have the world-wide renowned and respected Mr Max Marriott of Aarunga Clydesdale Stud as judge at our State Show – he was kept very busy during the weekend with 50 horses to judge!! Mr Marriott undertook his duties with pride and diligence – what an amazing opportunity this was for all competitors!!
Committee member, Brooke Atkinson worked extremely hard to ensure that our State Show was a success and she did an amazing job!! Huge thanks to Brooke and congratulations on her success in the show ring with her exceptional colt SP Sir James – definitely a star in the making!!!! Incredibly, Brooke had her baby just THREE days after the show!!! The CCHSWA are delighted to announce the safe arrival of Brooke’s beautiful baby daughter, Mia, and wish her well in all her future endeavours.
It was wonderful to be part of a show that not only had quality horses on view but also owners/handlers who entered into the spirit of encouraging others and having fun on the day!
Day two of the show was supported by local spectators who enjoyed our harness classes.
Congratulations to all the harness competitors who all did a great job. Mr Walmsley won the Matilda Part-Bred Trophy and Mr Phil Lucre was the overall winner – taking home the Walter Angel, Rex Newbold and Duncan Mackinnon awards – well done Phil!!!
