Cutcombe Horse Show & Gymkhana Report - Sunday 19 June 2011
This was the Silver Jubilee celebration of Cutcombe Show, but as the day drew near we were worried we had become too complacent, expecting the good weather we have been lucky enough to enjoy in the past!  However, despite some soakings for the intrepid helpers hauling the equipment, erecting the rings, tents and jumps beforehand, the day dawned bright and sunny. That did not last, but it stayed (almost) dry for the morning, then in the afternoon it cheered right up to the warm and clear day we had hoped for.  A fitting anniversary to present 5 new cups that had been donated; our thanks to the business and families who generously provided these. Entries were good, and despite the early start, all classes were well filled and standards were high making it a long morning for the judges. Lizzie Little rode Cheeky to win the Chanin & Thomas Cup for the Best Horse in Show, while Phoebe Swan on Lulubelle won the Jack Strong Memorial Cup for the Best Pony in Show.  In the Mountain & Moorland Ring Marian Williams was awarded the Tawbitts Championship Rosebowl with Cheriton Ridge Chardonnay, also taking the Bob Westcott Memorial Cup for the Best Exmoor in Show. The Joyce Trow Cup, was presented this year for the Best Non-Exmoor and was won by Ellie Malin on Blackertor Island Viking  - Ellie had a brilliant day, also winning the cup, as well as a jumping class on her other pony. As the weather continued to improve, cars started filling up around the main ring and from there spectators were able to enjoy the Fancy Dress with a well filled and colourful entry - to whom we offer our apologies for the late running of this class.  Special thanks to Mrs Millie Edwards and Mrs Phyllis Stevens for standing in to judge this difficult competition; the entries were all brilliant with the winners comprising a group of 7 from the Brimclose Stud as smiling Pirates of the Caribbean. Our thanks also to Bella Capel Photography for busily taking photo's around the showground, some of which you will be able to see on our site. Next in the main ring came the Minehead Harrier's first parade of the summer, shown by their huntsman, Richard Tong; then children were invited into the ring to meet these very friendly hounds, before we were treated to one last horn blowing canter around the ring.  With the jumping classes still going on nearby, the gymkhana games formed the main ring entertainment for the afternoon. Spectators were thrilled with the exciting finishes from the very competitive classes - our thanks to Darren Edwards for providing an excellent commentary - you will be pleased to hear that no fall resulted in any serious injury.  Thanks to the marvellous parents of Cutcombe School who provided and sold delicious home-made refreshments beside the main ring; the trade stands looked busy while the Family Dog and Terrier Shows, alongside the Dog Agility demonstration appeared to have good entries too and we offer thanks to these judges, particularly Julie Dare for stepping in at the last moment to judge the terriers. The committee wishes to thank Mr & Mrs Harold Stevens not only for so kindly allowing the show to be held on their land but for all the work they both also put in for this day; the other judges who gave their time and the local sponsors who play such a big part in making the show profitable and therefore able to help village amenities like the school, the church, Moorland Hall and various others like the Playgroup as well as an annual donation to the air ambulance - which thankfully we did not need!. We also wish to thank the many helpers who make running this show possible, and enable us to achieve our aims of helping children to enjoy their ponies. Special thanks to Marcus Capel for providing a really brilliant commentary for the main ring - as well as managing to ride in, and win, a jumping competition.  Finally, thanks to everyone who came along and supported us, helping to make the day a complete success.
