Best of the Best

Best of the Best

  • The Stirling Bull Sales was less of an eye-opener that I expected when I made my first ever visit to the famous event earlier this month.

  • AT A time of year which is depressing for more reasons than one, it came as light relief to receive the accompanying photograph which had winged its way via the Internet from the other side of the world.

  • While expectations run high every year at the Horse of the Year Show no one could have predicted the success of Scottish exhibitors at this year's event which was impressive by any standard.

  • It may be affectionately known as the 'Wee County' but Clackmannanshire became centre of the universe at the World Equestrian Games (WEG) held in France earlier this month, when Joanne Eccles, from Tillicoultry, took the individual gold medal in the women's individual vaulting competition.

  • A RECENT judging trip to Ireland with its border control and foreign currency, brought home to me the need for all of us to concentrate our minds on the impending Scottish referendum.
