12th Annual Summer Show for Horses & Ponies 2019 – our biggest and best yet!

We are pleased to announce entries are now open for our 12th Annual Summer Show for Horses and Ponies at West Fenton.  This year’s Show, on Sunday 21st July 2019, is a Qualifying Show for the Caledonian Showing Championships 2019 and The Festival of Champions Scotland 2019, and is set to be our biggest and best yet. 

Our Summer Show is one of the biggest Horse Shows in East Lothian with 47 Classes for our competitors to choose from, meaning there is something for every level of rider and their pony or horse. This year we are delighted to announce our Show is a qualifier for two significant events in the Scottish Equestrian calendar, the Caledonian Showing Championships and the Festival of Champions Scotland 2019!  Beautiful rosettes and trophies are awarded for all Classes at our Show, plus the Champion and Reserve from our four Championship Classes – Pony or Riding Club, Ridden, Working Hunter, and Mountain & Moorland – go through to compete for Supreme in Show.

Organised by and in aid of Muirfield Riding Therapy, the Show is held at West Fenton thanks to the generosity of the Morrison Family.  It is one of our biggest fundraisers in the year.  This year, Muirfield Riding Therapy is celebrating 30 years of providing life-changing therapeutic riding, free, for children and adults with various disabilities, in East and Mid Lothian.

A large number of people are involved in putting on the Show each year.  Without the kind contributions to the Show costs by our Sponsors and to our Judges who give up their valuable time, there would be no Summer Show.  Our main Sponsor for 2019 is MacGregor Healthcare Ltd , our four Championship Class Sponsors are Andrew Black Haulage and Drem Timber & Fencing LTD and Garden Solutions and Lothian and borders electrical , and we are thankful to our many Class Sponsors who donate each year.
