Goathland Hunt Pony Club held their 12th annual show in ideal conditions on Hinderwell Lane, Runswick Bay, by kind permission of Mr & Mrs J & C Barker.

District Commissioner of the club, Steven Gale, reported that the weather was “the best we have had for the last couple of years” which resulted in a rise of pre-entries and entries on the day.

“This is one of our main fund-raising events held throughout the year which enables members who attend their annual camp at Kettleness at the end of July to have the best week possible with lots of activities planned,” he said.

“We are indebted to our generous sponsors for the show classes, and I would like to express my sincere thanks to John and Carol for the use of the field, the local businesses who sponsored the classes and all members and friends who assisted on the day and supported the club.”
