Despite the unsettled bank holiday weather there were record entries for the Thornton Dale Horse and Pony Gala at the showfield on Sunday.

This year the show has increased the number of classes to accommodate additional showing classes and larger unaffiliated showjumping classes which proved to be very popular with the competitors last weekend.

This is the first year that the show has run a supreme championship which was won by Hollie Cook and Thomas with the reserve going to Hannah Fearon and April Blossom.

The show has become increasingly popular since it first started over 10 years ago and despite continuing to grow, has kept its friendly atmosphere and continues to fulfill the aim of having classes for all ages and abilities with the emphasis being on fun!

“We had a fantastic day and I would like to thank everyone who helped to make the day a success,” said show secretary Rosie Garbutt, “We have had some great feedback from competitors and are now already planning next year’s event.”
