Laurel View plays host to Easter “Egg-stravganza

editorial image

The Easter Show at Laurel View on April 8 proved to be another “egg-citing” day out for competitors of all ages.

A good crowd of supporters “egged” on the competitors as they hopped round the obstacle course and frolicked round the show jumping fences.

Trophies and rosettes galore were handed out. No more obstacle courses at Laurel View until the Summer Show comes round, but still plenty of chances to get jumping at the Wednesday evening show jumping competition, starting at 6pm with the 45cm up until the Spring final on May 2. Don’t forget the fantastic fundraising jumping competition on Sunday, April 29, the Charles Hurst Charity Jump X. Check out event updates at
