Welcome to the Cutcombe Horse Show, Dog Show & Gymkhana
Having enjoyed fine weather for most of the previous 25 years of
Cutcombe Show it was most disappointing when the day dawned
grey and wet - and looking like it would continue raining all day.
Entries were slightly down, probably not helped by the preceding
week's weather forecast and due to the road closures relating to
another local event (the Ironman competition). Having fewer entries
meant the showing classes finished earlier enabling the hound
parade put on by the Minehead Harriers to take place before lunch
so the gymkhana was ready to begin on time after the Fancy Dress
in the afternoon.
The weather did improve as the day went on, becoming drier and
much warmer for the afternoon activities. It was great to see happy
faces winning rosettes and trophies, especially for the colourful
Fancy Dress competition. Our thanks to everyone who supported
us, especially the judges and competitors who had to bear the brunt
of the bad weather during the morning! As the day picked up more
cars kept arriving, bringing good entries in both the Family Dog and
This influx meant there were more people on the field to enjoy the
delicious homemade refreshments put on by the parents of
Cutcombe School so our thanks to them. Thanks also to those who
helped clear the field, this invaluable help is much appreciated by
the hardworking team that set everything up and then clear it away
This may not have been one of our busiest shows, but most
certainly better than last year when we had been forced to
cancel the show on the day before. A final word of thanks to
Mr & Mrs Harold Stevens who kindly allow us to use their
field and provide much help, especially on the day. The show
is held to help raise money for local causes such as the
Friends of Cutcombe School, etc.
