Show raises funds for Riding for the Disabled
The Gatehouse Horse and Pony Fundraising Show at Barstobrick Equestrian at Ringford proved to be a big hit with participants and spectators alike.
Held in aid of the Galloway Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA), the show saw Karolina Szafer on Holly Marsh Martini win the Willie McKay Championship to become senior champion.
The Junior Championship cup was won by Nadia Powell riding Smokey while the Mini Junior Championship went to Belle Anderson on Leswald Pegasus.
Belle also won the Supreme Championship.
Once again several RDA riders participated in the show and the trophy for the Handy Pony Competition was won by Taryn Cotton riding Melody.
The Family Horse class Trophy was won by Vicky Cuttler on Fiona and the Equitation Trec Trophy was won by Sam Howard-Pope riding Fiona.
The Dressage Classes were well attended. The Introductory Class A2008 was won jointly by Jill Widdop riding Enigmatic Secret and
Hannah McIntyre on Doyland Adorable Gift.
The Preliminary Class 2 2016 as well as the Novice Class 30 2006 was won by Nicki McKie riding Autumn.
The overall winner of the dressage competition was Nicki McKie.
The organisers would like to thank Judges Alice Greenwood, Susan Cook, Lucy Stratford, dressage writer Julia Graham and all helpers and volunteers who gave their time freely and without whose help the event would not have taken place.
Their thanks also go to Mr Robin Austin of Barstobrick Equestrian for the use of the excellent facilities provided by the centre which once again contributed to the show’s succes.
