2020 Northern Stallion Showcase Cancellation Announced

Organisers have today (Monday, March 16th), announced that the 2020 Northern Stallion Showcase, supported by Baileys Horse Feeds and due to take place on Sunday, April 5th at Newton Rigg College Equestrian Centre in Cumbria has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

Pam Harrison from the Cumbrian-based organising team explained: “The Showcase takes place at a busy College venue, which may be subject to enforced closure in coming weeks, in addition to which, gatherings of specified numbers of people may also be prohibited. Notwithstanding those formal considerations, visitor numbers at the Showcase approach 500 and given the potential health risks to all of them, along with staff, volunteers and contractors, we have regretfully concluded that the rapidly developing, situation means it is both sensible and socially responsible to cancel at this stage.”

Baileys Horse Feeds Marketing Manager Jane Buchan added: “We are completely supportive of this decision, as we understand the organiser’s commitment to supporting current efforts to increase ‘social distancing’ as an important element in managing the risks posed by Covid-19.

“We will be continuing to work alongside the Northern Stallion Showcase team to support those studs which had stallions entered for the Showcase with ongoing online promotions and we welcome all feed-related enquiries from both studs and mare owners throughout the 2020 breeding season.”

All stallion owners, trade stands will be contacted individually with further information. Online tickets had not been made available prior to the cancellation decision.

Val Williams confirmed; "Glenwood has been bringing stallions to the Northern Stallion Show Case since it started a few years ago. We have always found it to be extremely well run and a great day for everyone. We have certainly gained clients from taking our stallions to this event as they can be seen in their stables,  we can chat to the mare owners in depth and they can watch them moving in hand, ridden or jumping, depending on the stallion.  We are delighted to be taking stallions again this year."

Emma Greenland from Ivy House Stables Stallion Centre has the shortest distance to travel from Skelton near Penrith and is another 'regular' at the Showcase. She will again present the thoroughbred son of Kyllachy, Arabian Gleam and said; "We are looking forward to bringing Arabian Gleam back to our local stallion showcase, meeting customers old and new and hopefully creating a bit more of a buzz about our special boy!"

Showcasing stallions for the first time is Gornall Equestrian and Jamie Gornall confirmed; “We are looking forward to attending the Northern Stallion Showcase and presenting our jumping stallions to breeders close to our North Yorkshire base.  We are taking two stallions who both are great types with fantastic bloodlines; one more established and one who is younger up and coming.
