Boost for Montgomery Show

Organisers are hoping to reinstate a thriving horse and pony section at this year’s Montgomery Show on August 20 following the donation of new trophies.
 
The section, which was popular in the 1960s and ‘70s, was reintroduced to the annual show two years ago but the organisers are looking to attract many more entries this summer.
 
Town crier Sue Blower has given the section a big boost by donating two trophies for the champion and reserve champion in memory of her late father, John, who was a prominent figure in the show for many years.
 
There will be three rings for horse and pony competitions, with classes starting at 10am and running throughout the day. The classes include tack and turn out, young handler, utility equitation, handy pony or horse, fancy dress and clear round jumping.
 
Horse and pony section secretary Pam Tanner said: “The horse and pony section was a major part of Montgomery Show in the past but it was only reintroduced two years ago and we are now keen to attract more entries.
 
“We are very grateful to Sue Blower for her very generous donation of two John Blower Memorial Trophies this year, which should be a great incentive to horse and pony riders to enter.”
 
For more information about horse and pony entries may contact Pam on 0797 444 1651.
