David Jordan, Show Chairman, thanked the Sponsors and all those who took part, especially those who travelled from far afield. He acknowledged the effort put in by both the organisers and exhibitors to ensure that the show was such a success: “Our aim is not only to recognise some of the best ponies and their breeders, but also to encourage amateur exhibitors and children to take part. It is wonderful to know that the breed continues to be incredibly popular as a child’s pony, and for suitable adults to enjoy, whether riding, driving or in-hand.”
