2016 Shows

National Heavy Horse Show

Once again the SHSA put on a great show open to all heavy horse breeds. We had lots of fun catching up with people and competing with Darkmoor Jester and Darkmoor Jazz.

Jester was a last minute sub in for another horse on our show team and we were very lucky our wonderful farrier Wesley Stewart agreed to come in at 6am to shoe him. Jester was his usual unflappable self, despite not having been out since April last year. He spent his time ringside napping, snuggling with children and trying to lick a yapping Kelpie puppy (yes, seriously!) before going out to win First Place Gelding Over Four, Best Feather and then Champion Gelding.

Jazz reminded us why we loved showing her last year – she takes everything in stride and is incredibly settled for such a young horse. She won Second Place Yearling Colt or Filly and then Reserve Champion Young Stock.

A big thank you to our ever wonderful helpers Liz & Dan for giving up their weekend time to make the trip up and help us turn the horses out. You two are amazing friends.
