After a heavy downpour cut short last year’s Open Show, it was with fingers tightly crossed that it wasn’t repeated this year. The Open Show, the largest competitive event of Exe Equestrian Club’s season, took place at Nutwell Court, courtesy of Nigel and Paula Lee.

Novice and experienced riders took part in show jumping, showing, working hunter classes and dressage. The winners of all classes went forward to a championship, the winners being: Ellouise Board (Eponas Puzzle) Champion Working Hunter; Ruby Lawrence (Salbrook Darius) Champion Show Pony; Georgia Lea (The Cobmander) Champion Show Horse; and Champion of Champions went to Georgia Lea and The Cobmander.

The rider with the highest dressage score was Tamsin O'Connor with her horse Galway View.

The club would like to thank everyone who entered, making the show a success, all going home tired but smiling.

Success of shows such as this is with the support of sponsors St. David's Equine Veterinary Practice, Corner House Veterinary Surgery, Leeson's of Honiton and Devon Rosettes, plus all the volunteers who helped before and on the day.

The club will be returning to Nutwell on August 18 with a new event, Mixed Disciplines, involving jumping and dressage, plus showing classes, not forgetting the Fun Dog Show.

Come as a competitor or spectator; all are very welcome.
