Forest Edge gets into the festive spirit

Festive fun was on offer at Forest Edge Arena on Saturday.

The Christmas Fun Show featured novelty showing classes, followed by unaffiliated show jumping.

Several competitors entered into the festive spirit, adorned with tinsel, bells and red hats!

Black Shetland pony Burlington Bertie stole the hearts of the judges. Owned by Mrs K Rule, and led by young Arthur Rule, 'Bertie' won the Handsomest Gelding and 'the pony Santa would most like to take home' classes.

The most entertaining class of the day to watch was the 'Hoof and Woof' class: a round of show jumping, followed by a course of jumps and obstacles completed by the canine member of the family, all against the clock. The eventual winner was Holly Hetherington riding Ziggy, and leading Ginny.

This week is the all important British Showjumping Seniors Pre-Olympia Show.
