Kilnsey Show – the virtual version

Well 2020 has been a strange year. I have managed to get out to some local shows to showjump which has helped to keep me sane. Unfortunately, for the agricultural shows like Kilnsey (near Skipton in North Yorkshire) the tough decision to cancel had to be made, due to Government guidance for COVID-19.

Mrs B spotted that a virtual Kilnsey Show was to be organised instead. An appropriate and recent photo could be entered via email. The judging was to take place on the date the show should have run. Those results were announced yesterday, and I was thrilled to be told that Gadoralda D (Mollie) and I had won the showjumping class.

Hats off to the organisers and judges for getting this sorted. Particularly as this was done without any coin being exchanged. I look forward to competing there in 2021 and will be sponsoring again. Local shows deserve our support.
