Wayland Show as popular as ever

Record pre-entries for the 140th Wayland Show at Watton this Sunday have shown how popular this show is.

In an effort to provide something for everyone, organizers Adrian and Steph Soskin have added many new pony classes.

These unaffiliated classes are designed to give as many people as possible a chance to compete from leading rein right through to working hunter ponies, there is a class to suit all.

From young stock to veterans, the show has a wide range of classes and after the very successful entry in the latter at Royal Norfolk, organisers are optimistic about a good competition.

Also new for this year is the Budding Hopeful Championship sponsored by Ward Gethin Archer. In each class a Championship ticket will be awarded to the competitor, whom in the judges opinion has made the most effort but is not quite good enough to have been awarded a prize. All ticket winners will go forwards to their own Championship in the afternoon, where prizes include a lesson with a top local instructor in show production, Allen & Page feed vouches and Nags Essential saddlery shop vouchers. Every year, the equestrian side of Wayland Show gets better and better and what is more there is still time to enter because entries will be taken right up to and including the Show.
