This was our 50th Open Annual Show and in many ways probably one of our best !

By kind permission of Gaye Harwood and her family it was held at the lovely showground at Coombelands , set at the foot of the South Downs. This provided a super backdrop to the full and varied rings with inhand and ridden showing, dressage , and show jumping, to keep everyone busy !

We were blessed with perfect weather - sunshine and a cool breeze, and the ground was good . 

The competition was hot in many classes with the RoR and novice working hunters at capacity , and most others had healthy entries. This only served to make our hard working and encouraging judges life extremely difficult as they were literally spoilt for choice ! Many commented on the quality of their classes and said they would not be out of place at County level Shows - so thank you for coming and supporting us in our special Golden Jubilee year and we appreciated the time and effort that goes into producing and presenting your horses at their best on the day.

I hope you will all go and check out the evidence on LRG photgraphy website - and hopefully find a suitable photo to remember your day by.

There are so many people to thank that helped put this large show on and help run it on the day and behind the scenes. Thank you to all 63 of the HDRC members and family and friends, to our very generous and hugely loyal sponsors , to our judges who received great feedback from many you - thank you ! 

The full results are now available here - by clicking on the results tab - and look forward to seeing many of you again next year .

Max Gayler and the HDRC Open Show Sub Committee.
