Show Jumping & Show Gardens at Shrewsbury Flower Show

August is always a busy time for us - two fairly large shows, almost back to back, keep us on our toes!

Lanyon Bowdler have sponsored one of the Show Jumping classes at Shrewsbury Flower Show for a number of years.  This year the class was on Saturday 13 August.  About 25 riders completed the course in a timed competition.  The sun shone and there was a good crowd who enjoyed an exciting competition where just 1/100th of a second split first and second place.

The winner was Steven Whitaker riding Royal Rose, seen here clearing one of the jumps (with the famous St Chad's Church in the background).

Partner Allison Birtles enjoys handing out the rosettes to the winners - fabulous shot below of her with William Funnell who came third on Beowulf.

And of course, a mention for our wonderful show garden.  This year we were thrilled to be awarded one of Shropshire Horticultural Society's Gold Medals for our Seaside Garden.  We had so many people stop look at the garden, and listen to Beth Prior - who sang some wonderful songs with a true sunshine beachy feel.
