|I thought the Bakewell show was great, it was
Sinbad's first ever show and my first time at the Derbyshire
Fells and Dales show, and we had a great day. Everyone was really
friendly and supportive, and it was an excellent start to Sinbad's
show career - I am so proud of him and he didn't put a hoof wrong
For information, he is the 4-yr-old Dalefoot Sinbad, was 2nd in his in-hand (class 5a), but then won the 'ponies in their first season of ridden classes' novice ridden (class 24). I'd not been in the show ring on a Fell pony (after five years showing Highlands) for about 8 years, so it was lovely to have such an angel of a pony to come back on.
He was an absolute star all day and we'll definitely make the journey up again next year......
