Category C Champion at Woodhill Sands

Ballytruckle Shamrock (Mill Creek Valiant X Star) is a 9yo Welsh cob X tb mare and is really shining on the Showhunter stage in the Category C ponies.

In January 2012 at the New Year Showhunter and Showjumping Show at Woodhill Sands Katherine Martin rode Ballytruckle Shamrock with lovely flowing lines and made full use of the tight space on the grass in the rain to score an incredible 95% and win the Championship class for the Category C.

The judge said it was the best showhunter round she had ever judged! Well done Katherine and well done Shammie.

The next photo is of Katherine riding Shamrock at the Auckland Showhunter Group Spring Show in November 2010.

I chose this photo because it shows the energy of Shamrocks jump and her pleasing forward looking expression with Katherine showing calm, subtle skill and balance. All up a pleasing combination to watch go around the showhunter ring. Thank you to all the onlookers who commented on how well this combination are progressing.
