2015 Show Updates
Brechin Castle Equestrian Spring Show 2015
Only two plucky competitors brought out their Appaloosas to show at Brechin Castle Equestrian’s Spring Show on 3rd May on what must have been one of the worst days ever for showing – with heavy rain, wind and cold! Battling the weather and with dispensation from the judge to keep waterproofs on, Lindertis Doubletake won the in-hand class and Capitall Quinn won the ridden class going on to take the Championship! Hopefully the weather will be kinder for the late summer Show on 30 August.
Fife Show, 2015
Fife Show on Saturday, 23 May saw beautiful weather bringing record attendance of over 13,000! A good turnout of Appaloosas too, competing in 4 breed classes; in-hand over 4 years, youngstock, ridden over 4 years and judge’s colour choice.
4 Appaloosas took part in the in-hand. Lindertis Doubletake coming 1st, with Denise Scott and Oor Miss Molly 2nd, Wendy Clark and Oor Gillie Dhu 3rd and Laura Hendry and Larkmeadow Penny Arcade. The youngstock class was won by Oor Perfect to a Te and her owner Helen Sinclair. Sue Rore’s Lindertis Doubletake went on to win the in-hand championship with Oor Perfect to a Te Reserve.
The ridden class had 4 entries, 1st was Breanna Paterson and Highly Addictive, 2nd was Sue Rore and Lindertis Doubletake, 3rd Denise Scott and Oor Miss Molly, and 4th was Wendy Clark and Oor Gillie Dhu.
The judge’s colour choice was contested by 3 leopards of different shades and a lovely blanket spot. The blanket spot, Oor Gillie Dhu won the judge’s choice with Oor Miss Mollie 2nd, Lindertis Doubletake 3rd and Larkmeadow Penny Arcade 4th.
A great show, well organised,
with good rings and lovely rosettes. All
the Appaloosas taking part were immaculately turned out, and were all so
well behaved, prompting many lovely
comments from members of the public on our beautifully striking spotted
horses! Looking forward to next year’s
