Country show hailed ‘outstanding’ success

17 Aug 2016 / Karen Darley

BOON Hill country show was “outstanding” this year thanks to record crowds and good weather.

Chairman Bob Gibson said exhibitors had travelled from a wide area to take part in the event at Newton-upon-Rawcliffe on Saturday.

The show specialises in horse riding and showjumping, terrier classes and vintage tractors, as well as cookery, horticulture, crafts and ferrets.

Mr Gibson said it had been an excellent day.

“I would like to thank the Woodmansey family, the committee and everyone for their help and support in the running of the show,” he said.

“The show also held a minute’s silence at 1pm to remember valued supporters of the show who sadly passed away in the last year.

“The show was a big success with record crowds and fantastic weather. There was a very good atmosphere and everyone was so friendly – it really was an outstanding show.”

This year’s Boon Hill Show raised funds for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Scarborough & Ryedale Mountain Rescue Team.

BOON Hill country show was “outstanding” this year thanks to record crowds and good weather.

Chairman Bob Gibson said exhibitors had travelled from a wide area to take part in the event at Newton-upon-Rawcliffe on Saturday.
The show specialises in horse riding and showjumping, terrier classes and vintage tractors as well as cookery, horticulture, crafts and ferrets.

Bob said it had been an excellent day, adding: “I would like to thank the Woodmansey family, the committee and everyone for their help and support in the running of the show.

“The show was big success with record crowds and fantastic weather. There was a very good atmosphere and everyone was so friendly – it really was an outstanding show.”

Bob said a minute’s silence was also held for Christine Nichols who ran the handicraft and cookery classes for many years.

“She was a much-loved lady who loved Boon Hill show and was a good supporter,” he added.

Horse secretary Ruth Russell said competitors had been out in force with 22 ponies and riders vying for the top slot in the 55cm show jumping class. “Another large class was the in-hand coloured and the judge had a difficult task sorting out the placings among a group of 17 beautifully turned out horses and ponies,” she added.

“Conditions were perfect. Not just the fine, sunny weather and light breeze but the going was good for horses’ legs too.

“We were blessed with some very fair and knowledgeable judges who gave up their day to help, our many stewards although at times rushed off their feet kept everything running smoothly, and not far off time considering the large classes.

“Finally, thank you to everyone who entered.”

The show raised “We hope you enjoyed your day and in the process you helped raise money for three very worthy causes, which were the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Alzheimer’s Research and Dementia Forward.”
