30th April 2012 : Lampeter photos are in the Archive

Over five hundred photos from the show are now loaded in the Archive. It was a difficult day for photography, and for the handlers and spectators, with heavy showers, dark clouds and bright sunshine. The two year old Section D filly class epitomised the day. I retreated to the car to keep me and the camera dry and only emerged to photograph the sodden winner, Coppathorne Sweet Rosalie, on her lap of honour. Half an hour later she, and her handler, now looking pristine, competed in the champioships in bright sunshine. We were delighted that Bryncadno Heledd, pictured above, a daughter of Gwynfaes Culhwch was Supreme Champion, a great day for Meirion and Dianne and Jane and Paul at Bryncadno. We have followed the progress of Heledd since she was a foal. She is pictured below with her sister, Bryncadno Ffleur whom we bought as Meirion had already bought Heledd.
