Good Friday Show Results
22 April 2011 held at The Grange, Okehampton, Devon.

On a wonderful sunny day the SWPA Good Friday show attracted nearly 200 ponies and horses to The Grange EC at Okehampton. With many NPS, PUK, Equifest and Royal London qualifiers running alongside SWPA’s own qualifiers and the newly introduced Olympia Veteran qualifiers the opportunity to gain those early qualifications was too good an opportunity for some to miss. Young Fiona Wilson was delighted to get her first NPS Silver Medal riding Sue Smiths’s lovely little Section C Tyntyla Osain which she qualified for the NPS Picton Novice and the Junior Ridden as well as the PUK Confined Novice and Junior Dalkeith. Another successful pony and rider combination was Danielle Balsdon with her Dartmoor Dykes Heather Maid, who will also be going to the NPS finals to compete in the Junior, Intermediate and Picton finals. Fiona and Danielle went Picton and Junior Champion and Reserve whilst a New Forest pony Willoway Lord of the Rings and Sally O’Connor’s Fell Stocklough Joseph took the open section.

New for 2011 SWPA have introduced the Olympia Veterans qualifiers and show secretary Medwin Broad said of the new classes that “it was wonderful to see so many ponies back out after retiring to compete in these classes”. The Pre-veteran classes were by far the best supported but Medwin hopes that as the season continues then more of the older horses and ponies will come forward to qualify for the regional semi-finals. The Highland pony Kingsmoor Frazer won the in hand section and went third in the ridden for the pre-veteran sections with the Shetland Samber Sarson taking the inhand 20 – 24 section and a New Forest Merrie Markteer taking the Veteran Plus ridden section.

Best classes of the day were in the Mini Ridden and Open In Hand classes. Young Ella-Louise Venning took NPS Mini Champion on her Welsh Section A Chetwynd Crackerjack with Isabella Alderson taking the overall Mini Championship on her open pony Barkway Mimosa. Jayne Carne took the open in hand championship with her miniature horse Hawk with young Molly Simpson taking the reserve slot with her part bred Oakum Just George. Some exhibitors in the miniature classes had travelled from as far afield as Guernsey to get their early qualifications for the SWPA Championships. Lisa and Jenny Batiste stated their journey had been long and eventful due to the Olympic preparations occurring in Weymouth around the dock area, but that they had a long weekend planned and had combined the show with dropping some mares off to stud.

In the novice ring 3 Michaela Searle’s 6 year old riding pony Chaseford Clearly Great went champion with Andrea Edington’s Welsh Part Bred Edhare Twinkle Toes taking the reserve position. Lauren Moore-Williams also had a good day winning the PUK Domino Part Bred class with the aptly named Chinook Easter Magic, and the Show pony and Arab classes with Beckside First Impression.

Secretary Medwin Broad reported that she felt the quality of ponies at the show was outstanding and the quantity of competitors guaranteed some classes having entries of over 10 making the show highly successful. The next SWPA show will be the Trinity show held at Taunton Racecourse on 15 May where once again there will be NPS, PUK, Royal London and Equifest qualifiers to aim for.
