Donkeys In-hand and Ridden

Judge: Mrs Britt Evans


This Show is affiliated to the Donkey Breed Society and classes are judged under DBS rules.

The T J Hunt Perpetual Challenge Cup (80), kindly offered by Mrs Ann Hunt, will be presented to the Best in Show.

The In-hand Champion donkey at this show automatically qualifies for the relevant Championship at the Donkey Breed Society Annual Supreme Championship Show in August 2019, provided it is owned by a fully paid up member of the Donkey Breed Society. A donkey may win more than one Championship at shows, but will qualify only once for the DBS Championship Show. Where the In-hand Champion donkey has previously qualified, the Reserve Champion donkey will be deemed the Qualifier. If the reserve champion has also previously qualified, the judge will select another donkey from the in-hand championship line up as the qualifier for the DBS Annual Supreme Championship Show. The DBS will present rosettes for Best Local Donkey (please indicate by wearing coloured armband), best gelding, best foal and young handler.
