The Friendly Highland Pony Virtual Show

Category: General

Breaking entirely new territory during Lockdown, Louise Maestrani, Grace Troup and Christy Seaman organised an amazing online show of Highland ponies. They were delighted to receive well over 70 entries for the 42 classes with a terrific range of activities.

Huge thanks go, not only to Louise and her team, but also to all the judges, the sponsors and the competitiors of what turned out to be a very special event giving so many Highland pony owners the chance to compete from their fields!

£700 overall was raised and Council are currently deciding exactly where these funds will be used for the direct benefit of our members. Watch this space!
