Summer Show 2011 Results

Even though the forecast assured us there would be 0% precipitation on Sunday 14th August, rain did make an appearance in a couple of very heavy showers!  But it did not seem to dampen the spirits of the competitors and spectators at the Laurel View Annual Summer Show.

Competitors competed and were placed in the wide variety of classes that made up the Summer Show Schedule. Championships were hotly contested but in the end the big rosettes were presented to Karina McVeigh and Midnight Reflection for Young Warrior Coloured Champion with Zara Fletcher and Springwell Boy as Reserve.  The Working Hunter Horse Champion Title went to Sharon Riddell riding Ringfort India with Lizzy Graham and Harvey in Reserve. The Working Hunter Pony honours went to Champion Sophie Winn on The Ferryman and Reserve Champion Lucy Stewart on High Bent Chardonnay.

A huge debt of gratitude to competitors who came from far and wide, judges for their time and expertise, scribes and arena parties for their attention and the folk responsible for ensuring the show went on despite the grotty summer weather.
