Excitement for everyone at Amberley
Fun and excitement: Competitors in ''So you think you're a farmer?'' are on a roll.
Royal stare: Neil Evans and Queen demonstrate how it's done.
The Amberley Show, taking place on October
27 this year, always ends up being a great day
out for rural and town dwellers alike.
President John Pankhurst says he is very
pleased with the way things are turning out.
''It is lots of hard work,'' he says.
''The committee has been wonderful and
deserves lots of thanks, and that includes
heads of sections and a veritable army of
''We need to acknowledge all our sponsors,
large and small -- without their support the
show would not be as healthy and successful
as it is.
''We are also pleased to have John Field-
Dodgson continue as our secretary.
''The show is essentially a community event
and a terrific opportunity to showcase the
multitude of agricultural and related
enterprises which typify the district.''
The show begins with sheepdog judging at
7.30am, followed by equine -- saddle classes at
7.45am and standardbreds at 8am. Then there
are sheep and goats at 9am with
showjumping at 9.30am. Children will be
interested in the pet lamb judging at 10am.
There will be a repeat of the popular Beef
Hoof 2 Hotplate from 10.30am, and again
there will be a Lamb Hoof 2 Hotplate which
occurs at 12.30pm.
The cattle are judged, killed and the
carcasses aged for 10 days before being
cooked by chefs.
Harris Meats of Cheviot will organise the
judging on the hook and the taste and
tenderness judging will
take place in the
This display has
proved to be popular in
the past and looks like
becoming a regular
event -- interesting for
city dwellers who
usually pick up their
meat ready wrapped in
The pavilion opens at
12 noon and visitors
can enjoy a variety of
displays -- handcrafts, cooking, photography,
school exhibitions, grain and seed, amateur
construction, home produce, spinning and
weaving, art, flowers and vegetables and even
handwriting and poetry -- something for
The popular ''So you think you are a
farmer?'' has a new format this year and runs
for a maximum of two hours.
Challenges may consist of the following:
stock whip, wood cutting, ATV skills, strength
challenge, sheep challenge and horsemanship.
Prizes will be awarded in each section and the
grand prize of $500 for the overall winning
team is certainly worthwhile.
There will be sheep events, fencing and dog
challenges and these will be followed by the
Grand Parade at 2.45pm which will also
feature vintage machinery.
Keep an eye out for the sheepdog
demonstration following the parade, as this
features maestro Neil Evans of Omihi and
should be a stunning display of control.
Another exciting event will be the Two
Jump Challenge beginning at 3.20pm.
Each time a horse clears the rail it is raised,
until there is just one competitor left.
Of course there will be all the features one
would expect of a great country show -- barrel
racing, woodchopping, vintage machinery,
fairground attractions and plenty of food and
There is too much going on to encapsulate
Saturday, October 27, and see for yourself.
