In Pictures: Young Handlers take to the sheep ring at Saintfield Show

There was a great entry of Sheep Young Handlers in both age groups at Saintfield Show, which was held at Glenbrook Farm on Saturday.

Rex Vincent, from Devon in England, admitted it was a very tough task selecting the winners as he judged the two classes.

Competitors were vying for a qualifying spot, which would see them take part in the Young Handlers Final being held at Clogher Valley Show on 27 July.

In the end, it was 10-year-old Gideon Henry from Poyntzpass who was the winner of the younger age group, while James Waddell took first place in the age 12-16 class.
