Another season of shows has come to an end for our winter break. Our team once again had a fabulous run at our local shows, gaining many wins for 2015 Royal Shows.
First show to the “May Run” was our local show – Orange Ag. We only competed with one – new addition “Cherrington Painted Lady” (owned by John While, Cherrington Pony Stud), attending her first ever outing. Lady was very well behaved, and picked up one Champion and two Reserve Champions in her Led Welsh, Australian Saddle Pony & Pony classes. Lady also attended Wellington Ag Show where she was awarded Reserve Champion Led Hunter Pony. Lady is currently being started under saddle, and will be a Newcomer for 2015.
Cherrington Painted Lady
The star of our team this season was “Cherrington Top Class” (owned by John While, Cherrington Pony Stud). Competing in her first full season under saddle, Cherry has taken everything in her stride. She had great success winning Champion Led & Ridden Welsh B and Australian Saddle Pony on numerous occasions, and has brought home a win in the Show Hunter Pony classes from every show. This includes Champion Show Hunter Pony at Mendooran, Yeoval and Coonamble (from a line-up of Royal and Grand National Qualifying winners), and Reserve Champion at Blayney and Gulargambone.
We also attended a few Youngstock Shows with 2yo gelding “Tilcan Dusty” (owned by Mark & Rebecca Brown & Family). Dusty picked up broad sashes at his three outings, including Supreme Champion Pony Youngstock at the Western NSW WP&CS RPG Foal & Youngstock Show. Yearling filly “Cherrington Catriona” (owned by John While, Cherrington Pony Stud) also attended the Cootamundra Foal & Youngstock Show where she was awarded 1st Welsh B Yearling Filly, and Reserve Champion Australian Saddle Pony Youngstock – a big feat for a yearling against older stock! We are very excited about Kitty’s future!
