We congratulate Ridden Champion Silvern Moonlight and in-hand champion Silvern Surprise on their success.

I am grateful to the many sponsors of the classes and championships, without whose generosity this show could not have taken place.

Congratulations for past successes to:

MAGIC DOMINO (16hh white stallion bred at Gadebrook by Ludomino x Hamsfah) on being awarded "Living Legend" status in the USA - the only British-bred horse ever to be so honoured, and "Horse of the Year" 2006 by ECAHS, the Crabbet organisation in the USA, a most worthy ambassador for the breed.

The "Living Legend" award is made only once every 25 years and given to only 10 horses out of 650,000 in the USA, so a great honour! In Canada, Magic Domino was the National Supreme Sport Horse Hack in 1998 and has won regional Sporthorse Championships in the USA. He has also attained Legion of Excellence Dressage status and has the highest points of any ridden Crabbet horse in North America.
