In-hand showing classes for Youngster

I am looking to show my yearling next year, but am struggling to find shows with suitable classes. He is a Cob x Leopard Spot, so can't do M&M classes or breed classes, so am restricted to Youngstock or Partbred classes, or 'fun' classes. Does anyone recommend shows in the area that I should look out for? Hereford, Glos, Worcs border areas would be best for me, but I don't mind travelling a bit. I know that Tack Farm and Twynning Show are possibilities. Any more? Your help is appreciated.

Hi, snap, i also have a welsh sec D cross spotty! i took her to pound Green "Showing Show" last yr (Bewdley) a show a bit later on at the same place! it was very well attended but as it is a country show it's not too much presure for them and ideal to get them used to the environment. Good luck with him, our mare is 3 in March were just getting her ready to be ridden which is quite stressful but very exciting at the same time, they are lovely horses the spotties such great temps and easy to do i just love my little girl.

Re: In-hand showing classes for Youngster

I've found that the Herefordhire Equestrian site What's On is great to find various shows throughout the summer.
Year before last the first In Hand Show of the season was at Bromyard (now Kings), not sure if they are doing it this year.
It would be worth looking at Midlands In Hand site.
Three Counties Show is big but does not need qualifying for.
Have fun.

Have a look at Cricklands (The David Broome Event Centre) > Summer Shows > Schedules for July and September.
