Sarah Fox’s Don Dante ridden by James Aird won both the working and lightweight hunter classes this year, before going on to win the hunter championship — on a scorching Drymen showfield.
Entries were strong and some competitors — and their horses — even went swimming in the River Endrick to cool off.
Gayle Culross’s Smokey Mountain had a great day, winning both the riding horse and the veteran championship. Performance Arabians again took the Arab championship, but this time with the coloured horse Picasso Kossack. Mrs K Kilmurry’s Just Luki gave the family a great day, winning the Pony Club pony/Riding Club horse championship and the James Campbell of Aberfeldy memorial trophy with this supreme award going to their section this year.
Three big working hunter pony classes were headed up by Kirsten McKay’s Stuartdene. In the coloured horse classes, M Courty’s Paradiese took the championship.
