In the afternoon Libby contested a very strong and massive class of HOYS Junior Qualifying small breeds class with CADLANVALLEY MIKADO she won and was HOYS JUNIOR CHAMPION so an excellent day for our home bred ponies. Libby also won and Qualified for HOYS the Welsh A mare Nantfforchog Blue Moondust for Debbie Thomas

The following day was BSPS Wales where only CADLANVALEY BUZBY  competed in the Olympia Direct that means you first have to win the Ridden Welsh A&B Class which he did then he went on to win the Olympia Championship over all other breeds giving him his direct ticket to Olympia at Xmas time .We were so pleased for Libby and Buzby as they work so hard. After that Buzby was MEMBERS SUPREME and then took SUPREME OF SHOW for the second year running

Pictured here with Supreme Judge Mr Anthony Williams and the gorgeous crystal BSPS Supreme cup which Libby has won four times over the years.

Monday started of well when the Champion Palomino in hand was Cadlanvalley  Bentley then Libby was Ridden Palomino Champion on Cadlanvalley Mikado. She then went into another ring and was Champion SHP with Debbie and Ron Thomas  Warleigh Blushing Groom

On to the Wednesday in hand and we saw Cadlanvalley Masterclass win a good yearling Welsh B colt class, owned by the Janpete stud he looked fantastic

In second place to him was our own Waxwing Masterplan purchased as a foal from Waxwing stud as an outcross for our mares, if youre going to get beaten at the Royal Welsh great to be beaten by one you’ve bred

Wednesday afternoon saw Buzby content the new Gold Medal class ending up Reserve Champion missing the Gold Medal by one mark from the ride judge

The last class was the HOYS B Ridden class on the Thursday although he has previously Qualified for HOYS it was disappointing being drawn in top position to see him totally unplaced after doing a foot perfect show with Libby .It transpired after the Championship when the judges checked the mark sheet the ride judge awarded a mark of 48 but the steward recorded a mark of 38 which resulted in a non placing. Upsetting for all concerned especially Libby when you know youre pony had won at the Royal Welsh but didn’t. As the Supreme Championship was on at the same time she could have contested that on the Champion SHP but decided to ride Buzby so was dealt a double blow.
