The Cuddy Supreme In-Hand Championship at Kent County Show has been somewhat of a Welsh breed benefit of late, but this year things swung in favour of the horses — much to the delight and relief of Moggy Hennessy and her hunter young stock champion, the eye-catching roan Now We Know.

Now We Know contests both hunter young stock and sport horse breeding classes, and is having a great season — picking up championships at Newark, East of England, South of England and Royal Norfolk so far this term.

“Today’s judge was a hunter man, but nine out of 10 times they don’t always go for the hunter types in a Cuddy,” said Moggy. “He likes horses to have good bone — and Pinky has so much timber.”

Reserve in the Cuddy was Emma Edwards’s yearling Runnow Rio Grande, who headed the sport horse breeding championship the previous day,.

“Runnow Rio Grande is home-bred and the seventh generation my mum and I have bred,” said Emma of the Catherston Dazzler-Copacabana yearling. “He’s an absolute sweetie and he knows he’s gorgeous.”
