Since, Equine Secretary, Steph Soskin stepped into to run the horse section it has grown and grown. The Wayland Show near Watton in Norfolk boasts over ten qualifiers for different breeds, types and coloureds and as always the emphasis will be to encourage all comers with our judges briefed to give feedback and our unique Budding Hopeful competition.
The popularity of the RoR (Retrained racehorses) increases every year and reflects the standard of exhibitors and judges with the 2015 winner and supreme champion, Rebecca Court with Beware Chalk Pit going on to win the National Championships at Hickstead a couple of weeks ago.
2016 sees extra thoroughbred classes both in hand and ridden, TARRA and the RoR have combined to hold a new qualifier aimed at amateurs. Traditional cobs, with TGCA qualifiers and Coloureds catered for plus the Arabian RASS Classes including the CARE (Career after Racing and Endurance), and Mountain & Moorland and rare breeds.
The Allen and Page working hunter ring, by popular request made bigger this year, welcomes juniors this year and working cobs, novice and open working hunters and the ever popular RoR challenge. The Allen and Page inter-team Relay greets teams of three from any discipline, Pony Club, Riding Club, Hunt, yard or just a group of friends for a first prize of £300.This is a real crowd puller with our ever enthusiastic commentator encouraging the crowd to put their hands together and cheer on their chosen team.
All the champions will be parading in the main ring and the Supreme will compete for the Champion of Champions. This unique class pits the very best of all the different varieties of animals at the Show against one another. How many times have you had a chance to show against a pig, a sheep, a duck or even a rabbit?
The Wayland Show’s sole objective is to raise money for our local charities. So as well as having a great day, entries will help needy causes.
However if you have not entered in advance and still want to come riders are welcome.
