The Royal of England Show

On Friday we went to the Royal of England Show, which was the last one ever. I first watched the Section B's where the beautiful mare Eyarth Windflower was awarded Best pony with the exceptional moving 2yrold filly Paddock Alesha runner-up. The Best pony of the opposite sex was awarded to the lovely stallion Carrwood Bronzewing, with the runner up going to Carrwood Phoenix. 

I then watched the section A's, where Gartconnel Star Turn was awarded best male, with Dukeshill Darcy was runner-up. The beautiful mare Nerwyn Letitia was best female and best welsh mountain pony, with the stunning little filly who has a big future ahead of her Brynrodyn Blodwen was runner-up. 

I then watched the section D's of whitch there were very few, the yearling colt Alwen Cadno was best male with the runner up being Denniment Welsh Prince. The best female and best section D was awarded to Maesmynach Mared, with the runner up being Rainhill Rowena

I did not get to see the section C's as they were at the same time as the B's in a different arena. I watched the championship of the HOTY qualifyer which was really impressive, I then looked around the show and was really impressed by the stands, which were much better than anything in Australia although Claire assured me that I would be much more impressed with the Royal Welsh Show. I had a lunch of free samples and some beautiful icecream and the we made our way home. we arrived back very late and after some chinese takeaway went straight to bed!
