Local side saddle rider Helen Thomas, had a memorable Aberystwyth County show over the weekend when she was awarded the Supreme Champion title. Riding her seven year old mare Summer Time Lady Too, by local stallion Still Time Left, the pair won the Side Saddle Equitation Class, the Large Riding Horse, and then the championship before taking Supreme of Show.

The Russell family of New Quay also brought home a fistful of rosettes, with their homebred Ceinewyddfach Seren Aur winning the Yearling Palomino Class. Following the successful start to the morning, the Section D mare, Ceinewyddfach Dewines pulled out all the stops and was awarded a second prize in the Ridden D Section and Reserve Champion. They then went on to win the Large Breed M and M and took the Championship, ridden by Louise Russell.

Louise commented: ' We had great fun riding in the supreme! I love this mare, she was an absolute diamond all day and did everything I asked of her.'
