The recent Irish Pony Society Show held by the Western Area committee was a really successful and well-organised event. The four judging rings were laid out in the vast sanded area of Claremorris Equestrian Centre and the weather was just right for the occasion. There were Classes for all ages and types of ponies from Starters to Intermediates and younger children especially were well catered for and there was no shortage of rosettes and sashes presented. Running sixty-six Classes and finishing by 5 o’clock was indeed a class-act itself by any standards .
Finally at day’s end there were eight Champions lined up, all with a chance to take home the Supreme Championship of the Show. Five Judges assessed the top ponies of the day and in consultation they selected the Show Hunter Champion, Carr Side Kate with rider Sadbh O’Connor as their Supreme Champion of the Show. Lelia Oakman with It’s Miller Time, took home the Reserve Supreme Sash. Please hover over page for Caption.
