The long journey from Ballymoney to the Royal Highland Show proved very successful for the Hanna family from Macfin.

They won the Supreme Champion Clydesdale with their home-bred mare Macfin Diamond Queen, on her first outing of the year.

She is a 4 year old by Glebeview Sir Charles out of Kirkhouse Amazing Grace.

Diamond Queen took the top honours in the Clydesdale Section winning the Cawdor Cup and Medcalf Cups, to name but a few.

She was given the nod for Overall Champion by Willie Clark and the 
Clydesdale Male Judge, Neil Christie.

On Friday Diamond Queen went on to take the “Sanderson Trophy” for the Best Scottish Native Horse or Pony which then concluded with her taking the top accolade, the “Queen’s Cup” which circulates the beef, dairy, sheep and Heavy Horse Section each year.
