The Open Show was held on 23rd July at the new venue of Tismans Farm, Tismans Common, near Rudgwick in West Sussex.
Helen Annema writes:
“Thank you so much to everyone that came and supported the Open Show yesterday. I think we can safely say it was a success from the comments received.
A massive thank you from the club and committee to my co-organiser Caroline Court (and Andrew of course!) without whom the show would not have gone ahead this year. The club were very lucky to have had the use of this lovely venue by very kind permission of Mr & Mrs D Trafford.
Thank you to our judge Joanne Hartland for being very kind to us as first-time organisers and to our fab ring steward Will Leslie. Also to Stephie Trafford for judging the Concours class and to Miranda Purves for judging our carriage dog class.
The club would also like to thank all the stewards that helped not only with the showing classes but also with the Trec event. A special thank you from myself to Lynne Hamill for helping run the secretary tent on the day and operating the PA!”
In addition to the Show, there was a Trec event, which provided an opportunity to drive round the farm. Some people competed at both the Show and did the Trec!
