Brilliant morning spectating at the annual breed show, fab venue and everyone so friendly. Can’t wait to bring my mare next year, lots of classes to prepare for. Lovely to see so many gorgeous IDs! Well done all!

Colleen Eccles (5 Star Review)
What a wonderful event the IDHS Breed Show 2017 was! It was a great venue and everyone was friendly and helpful as it was my first experience of this annual event. To see so many utterly beautiful and talented Irish Draughts together was inspiring. Thank you to all involved.

This was mine and my horses first experience at your show, and I cannot express how well ran it was! Made for a highly enjoyable day yesterday. Thank you ever so much, we'll be back again next year ??

It was the first time I’ve come and watched having bought my ID 18 months ago and we loved it. A special thank you to the judge of the workers and equitation class who gave me some time and advice yesterday on competing in the future. I shall be back to compete next year.

We returned after missing the last two. Love the new venue! We had a lovely weekend, the evening championships were wonderful to watch. So enjoyed seeing the 10 people in the ring on foot for the judging of the 10 forward for the ridden championship the next day! Thank you to all concerned.

Thanks to everyone involved in this year's Breed Show. Well done to the organisers - let's not forget they are unpaid volunteers. I felt the venue was superb and the Arena UK staff were great.

Dear Carol, Carol and Louise
Just a line to thank you - and all your co-organisers - for a great weekend at Arena UK for the Breed Show. We had a great time - really enjoyed all the wonderful horses and great judges - and hugely appreciate all the commitment that goes into making an event like that such a success!
Many thanks - until next year then . . . .
All best wishes
