Message from Clair: “It is only fair to acknowledge there were some disappointments at last year’s Horse section and a great deal of work is going on to produce a fresh schedule for 2018. I have spoken to many people in the very short time I have taken on this role and there has been such support and goodwill with everyone having one aim – a successful horse and donkey show at Halifax. We are still working on the schedule but can share with you that the Show will be an early qualifier for the 2019 Equifest Championship. It will also be possible to take online entries this year as well as the usual paper method.”
