OUR COMMITTEEIt takes a lot of hard work by a team of dedicated volunteers, to put on this terrific show out for competitors and visitors alike. The committee, working together with the show's partners aim to deliver an effective and professional organisation for the greater good of the equine showing season. A large part of the work of the Showcase of Champions takes place in committee, made up of very knowledgeable and experienced individuals from different equine backgrounds. Committee members consider proposals and plan the with the aim to introduce progressive improvements to the show and the showing season.
I am delighted and honored to be the Ambassador for the Showcase of Champions. Who better to be behind the show said Carol... it’s all in the name! The Champion at the Showcase of Champions. Your chairman Carol Cooper was a very persuasive task master. I’m looking forward to putting my name to this fantastic show, and delighted to announce that I will be judging a number of competitions this year where all proceeds will be donated to my charity, The Bob Champion Cancer Trust.
