Scottish Grass Sickness Show

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to the show website!

 

This show is dedicated to the memory of Sykes, my beloved Clydesdale who died of Acute Grass Sickness in October 2009, aged 4 years.

 

Hundreds of horses die in Scotland every year from Grass Sickness.  Currently, there is no prevention and no cure.  

 

The Equine Grass Sickness Fund is the only registered charity in the world raising funds for research into grass sickness at the Moredun Foundation in Edinburgh.

 

The Scottish Grass Sickness Show aims to raise as much money as possible for the fund.

 

In 2016 we raised £2650 which brings the total raised by the show to £15,590 over the past 7 shows since 2010 which is an amazing amount, and its entirely due to all the support we have had from our sponsors, competitors and helpers over the years.

 

In 2015 Carol and I were invited down to the Royal Dick Hospital to be introduced to Princess Anne who is the patron of the Equine Grass Sickness Fund.  Something I never expected when organising the first show in 2010!

 

Please help by sponsoring a class!!  This year we have 66 classes with some new ones - Novice Ridden/Lead Rein M&M, Side Saddle, Donkey Condition and Turnout, Miniature Donkey, Donkey Obedience/Handy Donkey, and expanded dressage section.

 

I tend to use our facebook page for regular updates so keep checking our facebook page...despite the best intentions I never manage to keep the website as up to date as the facebook page...

 

Please message me / post a comment if you have anything to say.  

 

Come again!!!
