World Horse Welfare Show, Brechin 18th July 2010

This is a show which I have wanted to compete in since the first time I went along to it several years ago but until last week end I had never done so. I like the relaxed atmosphere of this show and of course the world horse welfare charity do a lot of good for horses so this is a very worth while event.

Prior to entering this show I thought I would ask the organiser which classes would be suitable to enter Friesian horses and she suggested the ridden heavy type. This is something which has been suggested to me by others but I had never really thought of my horses as being heavy, to me a heavy horse would be the clydesdales, shires or the traditional very heavy baroque Friesians. If compared to the typical riding horse type then I can see that many Friesians could be thought of as heavy as there can be big differences between a horse like Oscar (my stallion) and TB, warmbloods etc. So I thought there would be no harm in trying this class.

Oscar is the heaviest horse which I currently have so I entered him and as luck would have it the judges were happy to class him as a heavy type. He was a very good boy and was awarded 1st place. So it seems that we can enter Friesian horses into heavy type classes but where we would stand in just heavy horses I am not sure as there is a difference. Maybe I will give a heavy horse class a go at some point and see how we fair.

We were in the championship class for our ring and again Oscar behaved very well but the winner was a warmblood.
