    Cranleigh Show 2015 Show Report

    Perfect weather, record numbers of livestock, new displays and stalls, plus a fantastic exhibition of winning scarecrows drew one of the best crowds to Cranleigh Show on Sunday, 21 June. 
    Dancing dogs and children competed to do tricks and pirouettes, everyone loved Chippy the Barnowl, the breakneck scurry racing was a great hit, stunt bikes roared across the sky and families picnicked happily among giant farm machinery.
    It was a fun, relaxed, rural day out with plenty for all generations to enjoy and the level of support from both competitors and spectators proved our new June date is a winner. 
    Show Chairman James Childs was delighted with the day. “The weather was just perfect,” he said, “Our livestock numbers were well up – we had twice the number of pigs, good cattle entries and lots of sheep and one of the stockmen said the show was like it used to be, with a lovely atmosphere.  We estimate around 10,000 people came and enjoyed the show. It was one of our best ever.”  
    Local farmer Angus Stovold judged the beef championship and selected Mrs Jane Whitehouse’s magnificent Highland bull Tearlach of Benmore from Pulborough  as Champion with Mike Hind’s Simmental heifer in calf, Ravensdale Flare 7th from Mayfield, as Reserve. The Hinds have produced the champions for the last three Cranleigh Shows. 
    The Sheep Championship was won by a splendid Suffolk ewe from Diane Lindon’s flock at South Holmwood with a Southdown ram from the Goodwood Estate in reserve, and the Champion pig was A Dalloway’s Large Black gilt, with A British Saddleback gilt from Brook House Farms in reserve.  
    Champion Junior Stockman was Holly Richardson, 14, from West Hoathly with Jack Childs, 9, in reserve and Olivia Masters was judged best Young Lamb Handler for the second year running. Reserve was Cameron Clark.  Local breed winners included Godalming farmer Barry Myers who took the Hereford Championship with his heifer Boundless 1 Sally and R Edwards from Dunsfold won the reserve Best Hereford Heifer. 
    The horse show was very popular this year and it is a reflection on the quality of equine care in this area that the veterans’ class was so well represented. The class was huge! In fact it was a veteran that went on to win the Supreme Ridden Championship in the whole show. Hannah Rummey from Gatwick rode Tom Cruise II, a 21 year former Olympic event prospect. Reserve went to Alexandra Kelly with her Connemara Mountain and Moorland Champion. 
    Liz Eldridge stormed to success in the Double Harness Scurry Driving with Pride and Joy taking the Champion spot with Trevor Fairburn’s Stew and Dumpling in reserve. Liz also came third with her pair Just and Do It and fourth with Rise and Shine so she had a red letter day! 
    Private Driving Champion was Steve Tubb with Welsh Cob Bertie Independence Warrior. Reserve went to Rachel Baker from Chertsey with her big Dutch warmblood Synbad pulling an original 1920s spindle-backed Bristol gig. 
    The overall champion heavy horse was feisty two year old Shire mare from Ashtead. Broomsgrove Lola was shown by her owner Helen Calcutt. When she is old enough, Lola will be trained to join the growing number of Shires used for riding rather than draught work. Best turnout was won by Michael Harry’s four year old Shire Brickell King Bear with Deighton Dick from Plumpton College in reserve shown by equine studies student Sheneka Reid.
