FMS were pleased to suppport the Edinburgh Riding of The Marches event by sponsoring the Hunter Class at the Edinburgh Horse Show, Oatridge Sunday 12th May. The show went spectacularly well and exceeded all our expectations. The mountains of feedback we have received has been positive without exception. There was great competition in every class with family ponies being shown alongside quality show produced stock.
The FMS Hunter Championship was hotly contested and it was very difficult to choose between the entrants. The winner was Hilary MacTaggart riding her Middle Weight Hunter, Windsor Wood (affectionately known as Sam). I’ve attached pictures of Hilary Cantering during her lap of honour and being presented with the Gazco Cup by Lord Provost of Edinburgh Donald Wilson. Pictures courtesy of Sinclair Photography.
We have received feedback from Hilary as follows:
“There can’t be many improvements to make for next year – it was all very smooth-running and efficient. I can honestly say, as someone who competes both north and south of the border, there are some organisers who could take some tips from you!!”
The winner of the show supreme Championship was 6 year old, Miss Zara Mailer on her lead rein pony Pumphill Crusade (Zara calls him Crusty). Zara and her mum Victoria Taylor swept the boards in their class and advanced through the Ponies Championship to best some very stiff competition in the Supreme Championship. I have attached pics of Zara in her class and receiving the Charles Ross Memorial Trophy from The Lord Provost in the Supreme Championship.
All in all it was a great day and we’re going for it again on 11th May next year. Your sponsorship is greatly appreciated and we certainly couldn’t have put on this class of show without you.
