Iris Comes Out On Top

Out of a class of 43 it was Michelle Blackler and Iris, owned by Stephanie Wilson, who came first in Class 17, the Haflinger. According to the Chief Virtual Windsor Judge, Nigel Hollings,  it was Iris’s “strength and versatility” which set her apart from the rest.

In second place were Catherine Snodin and Oxnead Africa, a slightly lighter type of the breed, and of whom Nigel commended the strength of the limbs and the great scope of the animal.

Third place went to Katie Stewart and Woodbrown Phoxglove. ‘I loved the moving picture, it just shows how compact they are, really showing the versatility,’ remarked Nigel.

This class was very kindly supported by Finer Equine, who have provided a pair of stirrup covers for the winner.
