2015 National Show - Note of the General Manager, 19th May 2015
Having just experienced my first National Show, I thought I'd share a few thoughts and observations.
Firstly I want to convey my sincere appreciation to Members of the ASHS Board, Bruce Moxey & the National Show Committee, Officials, Judges, Volunteers and ASHS Staff for an incredible job over the 9 days of the programme.
With a record number of competitors, horses and events entered, this was the largest National Show ever staged. While I don't believe there were any major hitches, an event of this magnitude was bound to see a few hiccups which we will learn from for future years. If you haven't already done so I would encourage you to complete the online survey so as we can understand what we are doing well and what needs to change. The AELEC is a venue that Members feel comfortable attending and that their horses are in a safe and secure environment. A world class facility also needs to maintain certain standards which is something I will raise as the client in our debrief.
A number of things impressed me at the National's, but none more so than the strong camaraderie demonstrated amongst the competitors and a sincere acknowledgement of other peoples success. I especially enjoyed wandering through the camping grounds in the mornings and getting a sense of Members attitudes towards the Show, which I'm pleased to say was overridingly positive. There were a number of comments about the quality of horses in the FOY Sale, which in turn was evidenced by strong clearance rates and improved prices, and overall I was completely blown away by the magnificence of horses competing in every discipline. I continue to marvel at the versatility of the Australian Stock Horse and our very talented horsemen and women.
In closing, thanks to our Sponsors for their generous support and to those of you who attended in helping to make the 2015 National Show such a wonderful event.
