Spooner's Show 2018

On Sunday April 22nd 2018, after weeks and weeks of endless rain, Spooners Family Horse & Dog Show, went ahead in fields near Pound Farm, above Buckland Monochorum, by kind permission of Lord & Lady Morley, The Butland Family and Mr G Colton.  We would like to especially thank the Land Owners for allowing us to proceed with the show this year, as in the weeks leading up to Show Day, we were not certain the event could go ahead due to the wet weather.  However, the rain ceased the weekend before the event, allowing enough time for the ground conditions to dry out and as they say 'the show must go on' and it certainly did!


With over 50 showing classes, there was plenty to choose from for the 100 plus competitors on the day and with the Dog Show, Showjumping, Inter Hunt Relay and Tent Pegging Competitions, there was plenty of action for our spectators to watch.


Special thanks all of our wonderful Judges and their Stewards who did an excellent job and managed to keep us all on time throughout the day. Also to the Hunt Supporters team for keeping all of our Judges, stewards and helpers well fed and hydrated thoroughout the day, plus ensuring there was lots of lovely food for competitiors and spectators. Thank you also to Mary's BBQ team who kept cooking all day.



This years show would not be possible without our wonderful and generous supporters who sponsor the show. Thank you to:
