Grand Final ends campaign with a bang

Sunday saw the Grand Supreme Final of the Humberstone Pro-Am Showing Shows, a series of events that have been running at the Norfolk equestrian centre throughout the season.

Hundreds of competitors and spectators travelled from all over East Anglia to attend this spectacular event, which was a roaring success.

Show director Jo Kirk-Pickering says: 'I was thrilled with the large turn out and all competitors had put so much effort into attending the show.'

Combining both professional and amateur riders, the event showcased a wide range of talent in a huge selection of classes and culminated in an evening performance to music under amazing spot lights. Here, the fun classes were awarded their winners and judges Kate Scorey and Ella Fish had their work cut out with these packed classes.

The judging then moved on to the Overall Supreme judging of The Best Lorry Dog! Competition handlers had made stunning outfits for their much loved pets, with even a bride and groom strutting their stuff. These classes were judged by Charlotte Rule and she picked Ryan Charlton and his dog Sooty to take the award.
