Hairies Can Enter Search For A Star

The SEIB Search For A Star Championship has become one of the most popular showing series in the calendar, but owners of native or traditional types, particularly coloured horses, often bemoan the lack of a class for this type. Sadly the tight schedule at the qualifiers and the lack of available ring time at HOYS means that an additional class is unlikely in the immediate future, but this does not exclude these horses from the series. SEIB point out that native and traditional horses are eligible for the Riding Club Show Horse class and exhibitors are encouraged to have a go in this class.

“The Riding Club Show Horse class is for any type of show horse and, provided they can negotiate a small fence and some trotting poles, it provides an opportunity for those with traditional cobs to take part. I would love to see natives coming forward for this class”, said Nicolina MacKenzie, Marketing Manager, South Essex Insurance Brokers.
