Twelve horses were in attendance at this year’s Royal Show that was marred by the horrific weather conditions throughout the week leaving the competition grounds in very poor shape. On a good note it did not rain on the Tuesday being the Standardbred day but unfortunately the grounds were very boggy and clumpy in various parts.
This year saw the inclusion of a Novice Track To Hack class added for our breed that came under the HIA section being the first class in the morning. Five horses contested in the two height classes with Scoot On By and Global Alliance giving both their riders some hairy moments in the smaller height class.  The over height class had Sexy Beast, AP Burlesque and Prince Matao doing battle. Scoot On By and AP Burlesque were both victorious in their respective classes with the mare AP Burlesque taking the Champion honors and was awarded a beautiful garland and rug kindly donated by Sharon Joyce and OTT.
It would be a quick wash down and change of attire for those competing in the ridden class to be prepared for the Led classes that followed. Scoot On By caught the eye of the judge in the Best Presented class and was rewarded with the blue ribbon in this class. The judge did comment that it was an extremely hard class to judge as the presentation was so damn good.
It was disappointing that only two mares fronted for judging and it would be a third Royal Champion Mare title for the big black AP Burlesque with Radial Pie picking up yet another creditable Royal Reserve Champion sash.
With the geldings being separated into two heights it made for two very balanced classes. Scoot On By taking out the first over Swagga followed by Smart VC and Global Alliance. The over height group was won by the young gelding Vallentino over Notary Pretty Boy with Sexy Beast, President Hoylake, Caught On Camera and Prince Matao placing accordingly. First and second place getters in these classes were required to work on the circle all together for a comparison. Scoot On By was awarded the Champion Gelding title over Swagga for reserve. The supreme judging was done purely on profiles with the judge commenting how the two were of vastly very different types. In his words he commented the mare was very “Standardbred” type being big and robust whereas the gelding you wouldn’t know what breed he was. He also added that he was impressed with what he had judged today. With the drums rolling in the background Scoot On By would be called forward to be sashed Supreme Led Standardbred Exhibit 2017. He was awarded a lovely garland and rug again sponsored by OTT.
The ridden in the afternoon had just the two in the 15.1hh and under group that had Scoot On By winning this class over Global Alliance. The over height group had five horses asked to do a workout that included a workout with a canter only on the one rein as in the under height group. This class was very tight with the very well-schooled and more experienced Royal veteran Caught On Camera placing first over AP Burlesque for second. Prince Matao picked up third over Sexy beast for fourth and even though finishing at the rear Kerryn Davey and President Hoylake set out to give this horse an experience under saddle to further his education and they accomplished that in fine style. The winners of each class being Scoot On By and Caught On Camera plus second place getter AP Burlesque were ask to do individual workouts with again only requiring a canter on one rein but this time the opposite then previously asked. Caught On Camera worked faultlessly showing balance and fluent gaits and lovely transitions. Scoot On By was a little tentative in his work but still worked nicely. The mare AP Burlesque was starting to become more comfortable with her surrounds and put forward some lovely work. Caught On Camera was called forward for Champion Standardbred Ridden 2017 and again OTT provided yet another garland and rug. AP Burlesque was awarded the Reserve Champion for her delighted owner. The judge commenting that he was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the both these horses and it was a very tight decision. He also added that the overall standard of the ridden horses was very good.
