This is the first Wyong Show held after many years missed on the show calendar. The venue was Morisset Showground, with the day being bright and sunny, bringing out many people looking for “qualies” for entry to Sydney Royal Show. The committee set out a basic programme, but were open to adding classes where numbers of entries warranted.
Under judge Teena Bridge, the stock horse ring was well attended with a lot of youngstock as well as more seasoned horses stepping out for performance.
We had with us our two-year-old colt Tarraway Jackson, the three-year-old filly Montcalm Jocelyn, and gelding Knights Jugaby – all shown by Ashley.
Jackson won the led colt three and under class, the ridden stallion/colt, and the three and under working – very pleasing results.
Knights Jugaby had a terrific day winning his led gelding class and then was sashed reserve champion led gelding. He then placed second in ridden gelding hack, won the working gelding and was ultimately Champion Ridden ASH.
Our little black filly Montcalm Jocelyn was just out of the ribbons all day but did all that was asked of her very obligingly.
We saw Holly Clayden on her three-year-old filly Silverthorn Sheoak take out four first and a third placing – congratulations Holly. Also on the ring was young Brooke Joyner with her bay gelding Silverthorn Newsflash – not sure how Brooke went but saw she was also in the ribbons. It was nice to see Silverthorn Shotgun represented by Mick and Tiffany Allen’s typey gelding Benbrook Marksman also in the ribbons as well as being awarded Champion Led ASH Gelding.
Hopefully Wyong Show will become a regular event and that their committee will be well supported for future annual shows.
