Donkeys In-hand and Ridden
Judge: Mr Mark Kerr, West Sussex
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 2017, 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.
