Details of a fun photo show for all, which was conceived when the Midlands Show looked like it might not happen. This photo show has classes for everybody, registered ponies or not and is in part a showing show, and part fun. Please read the rules, which are few but important. We have been told that we can offer the Centenary rosettes for members or registered ponies, one per entrant, so it might be the last chance to make up your set? Any profit will go back into the Midlands Show funds, and there is a special rosette for the highest overall Area 11 member. Any queries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
