This year's Adelaide Royal Show went well, it was great to see that we had more entrants than last year, however it would still be great to see even more entrants.
Judging was interesting this year with a non-side saddle riding judge. We do however plan to put together a set of criiteria/ hot tips which will be sent to the Royal Agricuktural Society to assist non-side saddle riding judges in future.
Thank you very much to Wendy Hunt as our judge this year, and also to all riders and everyone that came to watch our wonderful events, and we hope to see everyone back again next year to support side saddle riding.
As well as side saddle we also had a number of members compete in other sections in the Horses In Action competitions at the Adelaide Royal Show, these results can also be found below:
