Two South Hams equestrians have returned with silverware from Devon County Show.

Lee Wellington, Kingsbridge, and Millie Logan, East Allington, both came home with rosettes from Devon County Show over the weekend.

Lee Wellington won the British Skewbald and Piebald Association Over 153cm class, which is a qualifier for the World of Colour Championship in September, with Barnfield’s Madison, and his second horse Criafol Ella Blue, was placed second in the Hunter Breeding Two-Year-Olds and got highest placed Irish Draught Sport Horse.

Millie, who is just 12-years-old, and her pony Ragamuffin entered Devon County for the first time this year and came first in the Open Welsh C Ridden Class, and then qualified for the Ridden Welsh Championship class where she was placed Reserve Champion.

She also entered the Young Handlers competition, for children aged 14 and under, and was placed second out of 15 and then Reserve Champion again, before competing in the Working Hunter Ponies 143cm where she came first again!

Millie’s mum Dena Login said: “We have had Ragamuffin for just under two years and he is a much loved family member. Although he is very strong, Millie hasn’t let anything beat her in getting to the standard she is riding at today.

“Millie is tall for her age so has to ride against adults mainly, and they did so well, the competition came from all over the country, with top quality ponies.

“Millie is so dedicated to her hobby and works so hard with her ponies. She is up every morning at 7am to muck them out and feed them before school, and again at night, in all weathers.

“We are so lucky to have fantastic support from friends, family and incredible instructors , who are there through the good times and the bad times, for that we are so grateful, not forgetting the helpful judges along the way who are so helpful with there constructive comments, both good and bad!”

Congratulations to both Lee and Millie, not forgetting Ragamuffin, Barnfield’s Madison and Criafol Ella Blue.
