SHAWVILLE Sept. 2, 2018
Although Sunday started with a healthy amount of rain, those who attended the early morning events managed to get out of the downpour and keep dry.
The light horse show got started bright and early in the arena. Riders showed off their skill and control as they navigated the ring.
The show was judged by Melanie Leach from Kemptville, who’s been judging horse events for seven years.
Her ring steward was Shauna McKenna, whom Leach referred to as her “wingman.”
Later in the morning, the live music lovers on the dance floor in the beer tent from the night before were replaced with livestock for the sheep show.
The show’s judge, Anna McIntyre, made the trip from Renfrew to lend her keen eye for the event.
McIntyre owns Southdown sheep at her Renfrew farm and shows miniature horses as well.
She’s been judging sheep shows – along with some miniature horse shows – for nearly a decade. Her agricultural expertise goes beyond judging as she’s also served as a 4-H leader for 16 years.
