Devon County Show 2017

THANK YOU

Congratulations must go once again to the organisers of this year’s Devon County Show. A tremendous event as ever and great to see so many attending over the three days. Well done!

HORSE LORRY PARKING

The South Devon Hunt played its part, taking responsibility for the smooth running of the horse lorry parking. Thank you to Mr Peter Prior and his dedicated team of volunteers for their long hours, hard work and humour!

PARADE OF HOUNDS

The South Devon Hunt had the privilege of Parading Hounds on the first day of the show. Congratulations to our professional huntsman Robert Medcalf and his team (Toby and Maz) for providing a wonderful display of both hounds and horses. All beautifully turned out.

INTER-HUNT RELAY

Friday saw the annual running of the highly competitive Inter-Hunt Relay. Representatives from 11 hunts took part with members jumping, running, horn blowing and looking smart! The South Devon Hunt team consisted of riders Maz Medcalf and Carol Cleave, backed up by strong runners Robert Medcalf and Toby How. The final results are unimportant, it was the taking part that counted.
