 National Hunter Show 2010

 

Anchorman had a worth while trip to Addington for the National Hunter Championship show this year.

This was his first time at the show and for a 5yr old he was amazing and i was very proud to be sat on him. Unfortanetly Carolyn Stevens who owns him could not make it to watch but he did her proud and the photo's speak for themselves!

Anchorman (Al ) has had a good start to his working hunter career this season.

He did his first open HOYS qualifier at Stithians Show 2010 and was 2nd he then went on to jump clear again at cambone show and finished 2nd qualifing for The Royal International Horse Show next year at Hickstead.

We then took the long journey up to Addington for the National Hunter Show.

He again jumped really well  also gained very good marks for conformation and won the 5yr old sport horse class.

I dared to take him in the heavyweight open working hunter class. Wanting only to give him confidence at this stage i was concerned that it might be a bit much at young his age. Well he loved it! Jumping as amazing as ever our only fault was jumping out of the arena to a white stile where he was a bit green and just tipped a pole, though this did catch out allot of the well seasoned worker's also. Their turned out to be only two clears and we were called back in for the showing bit with one down. He gave a super ride and again getting good marks for conformation finishing 5th with 4th place going to this years HOYS winner and 6th going to last years HOYS winner. We were all delighted with this result as we had very good company in the class
