Breeders gather for stallion showcase.
HORSE and pony breeders from across the north of England will be travelling to Park End Equestrian Centre near Wark next Saturday for the 2015 Northern Stallion Showcase, being held in association with Baileys Horse Feeds.
With a week to go before the showcase, which was held for the rst time in 2014, entries are still being received, with more than 30 superb stallions representing the native breeds, sport ponies and sport horses from the major competitions disciplines already conrmed.
Together they oer an unique opportunity for breeders to see a large number of stallions from studs around the country 'in the esh' and to discuss their mares and breeding plans for the 2015 season.
ere is also the opportunity to visit the stallions in the stables during the lunchtime break in the showcase programme and to talk individually to stallion owners and stud managers.
Pam Harrison, from the organising team, said: "ere is a lot of enthusiasm and support for a stallion showcase in the region, as it allows breeders to see a number of dierent stallions without having to commit time for travelling to all the dierent studs around the country.
"It also gives studs an opportunity to showcase their stallions to a large audience on one day, many of whom would potentially not otherwise nd time to visit individual studs."
Tickets for the Showcase are available online from a link on the Northern Stallion Showcase website at www.northernstallionshowcase.co.uk, with free parking and programmes for all visitors.
