New classes at Heacham annual horse show

Have your say

Heacham’s annual horse show brought out riders of all ages for a weekend of competition and fun.

The organisers had introduced some new classes into the mix this year with an elementary test added for the dressage competitors and a fun ‘horse and hound’ show jumping class, in which a course had to be jumped on a pony and then jumped on foot alongside a dog. This had spectators cheering from the edge of the ring.



The Allen and Page feed company was at the show to recommend feeds and give free advice and also help judge the condition class which helps raise money for Redwings Horse Sanctuary.
