Supreme hack impresses

EXCELLENT movement and form was all part of the high quality in this year's Gympie Show hack classes.

Supreme hack of the show was Vanity ridden by Ashlee Christensen from Booyal near Bundaberg, a former Gympie Show supreme hack.

Judge Nicky Hutchinson from New Zealand said the winner showed a combination of a very nicely put together horse and beautiful riding. "The overall picture of the movement and presentation just said wow," Ms Hutchinson said.

Contested between champion galloway, hack and pony, competitors were judged on conformation, movement and presentation.

The winner was presented with a sash, garland of flowers and $500 prize money.
