Just hors­ing around

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS/PEOPLE - By WENDY HUNT

MANS­FIELD Show will have a new com­pe­ti­tion this year, with the in­tro­duc­tion of the ‘Fancy Dress on Horse­back’ event.

Carol Ho­ran, chief stew­ard of the horse events, is keen that peo­ple know about this fun event.

“Com­peti­tors can take on any theme for their cos­tumes, and fancy dress can be for rider, horse and rider, or horse only,” Ms Ho­ran said.

“The com­pe­ti­tion is open to all age groups, es­pe­cially any­one who only wants to be in this event and not the other horse events,” she added.

All those who en­ter will re­ceive a rib­bon, and there will be mon­e­tary prizes for plac­ings.

First place will re­ceive $30, sec­ond $15 and third $5.

Judg­ing will be at 1pm and the en­try fee of $3 can be paid on the day.

The Fancy Dress on Horse­back en­trants will also ride in the Grand Pa­rade.

PRINCESS PER­FECT: You can come as a princess or any­thing else you like to the an­nual show’s ‘Fancy Dress on Horse­back’ event.
