ROYAL CORNWALL SHOW

 

The Spooner's 'Bog Hoppers' won the tack & turnout for the second year running. The Spooner's 'Flying Fillies' were 4th. The tack & turnout standard was extremely high and both of the Spooner's teams looked amazing.


The relay event was hotly contested with some very good horses.  Not many hunter types in the winning teams!  Both Spooner's teams had mostly first time horses.  The atmosphere of the main ring was quite overwhelming and so both teams were quite steady, but were placed - Bog Hoppers 6th and Flying Fillies 7th. 

A great day was had by all and the teams are looking forward and keen for next year.
