Sunny weather graced this year’s Constantine Country Show at Trengilly Farm at the the weekend.

Held with permission from the Carter family, there was a full day of activities on Saturday including horse jumping and showing, dogs and a strongly entered domestic tent.

Farm owner Paul Carter said it was a good day, adding: “The weather proved to be excellent for the show.”

This year’s show president was Eric Nicholls.

The day began with unaffiliated mini jumping in the main ring at 9am, followed by the open BSJA jumping that continued until 7pm.

The show ran a new class this year, for a former race horse that has become a riding horse, which proved to be |well supported.

Mr Carter said: “The show likes to support junior show jumping as they are the future.”

Sashes were donated by local businesses for riders judged on their style and performance. This year’s winners were Matthew Vincent and Tom Tieken.

Sammy Jo Coffin also jumped for the first time at Constantine, as the previous week she was competing at the Hickstead Derby where she was well placed.

There were four other rings in the field for showing and jumping, with an “excellent turnout” of showing and working horses.

The supreme champion horse was shown by Rebecca Williams from Ruan Minor riding Colour Collision. Reserve supreme champion was Deborah Opie from Truro.

Other main ring attractions were a parade of the Cury Foxhounds and a convoy of the vintage vehicles.

The committee organised a fun dog show where the champion dog was a foxhound puppy shown by Alice Nicholls.

The domestic section secretary reported a good attendance with more than 200 entries. The standard of needlework, cookery, crafts and eggs was described as “excellent”, with an increase in horticulture entries.

She thanked her judges, stewards and everyone who donated raffle prizes, plus John, Averil, Bridget, Jenny, Christine and Paul.
