2020 SHOW PROGRAM
Gresford Show offers a diverse range of show classes including our local rider, breed and led classes, as well as Off the Track Thoroughbreds and Australian Stock Horses.
All local competitors have the opportunity to be awarded the James Hall Supreme Local Rider (under 17 years) perpetual trophy which is based on the highest point score over two days of competition. The successful rider will also be awarded $100 prize money and a broad sash during the Grand Parade on the Saturday.
Competitors also have the opportunity to be awarded the David Cain Memorial which offers $150 in prize money and broad sash. The successful candidate will have accumulated the highest point score from placings over both days of the show.
Any competitors wishing to be considered for the David Cain Memorial will need to nominate their horse at the ring office by midday on the Friday of the show.
Recent rainfall in our area will hopefully allow us to run our scheduled Campdraft program with the only change being that the Maiden and Novice Campdraft will now be combined.
