As them was a record entry of horses for the Hor=o Show at Diivauehelle, a most successful <!ay was expected. Unfortunately, a routh«'-ly iv\W liJp.w nil night and continued ■ •n thrnnphont Thursday. In ppite of this tan',, the atU-ndfinoe waa very Rood, and there I T.-pre <i record number of motor cars on the j "round. The visitors included our member (lion Ii H. lU'odf-s). Mr W H. Mnnt % gomory (v'ce president of the Banks Penin tula A and P Association) Mr and Jas. Coop , of Littl'i River. Owing to the high \vind< the sen was very rough, and this stopped a number ot Akaroa people who had intended malting the trip. The arrangements for the Show were ex , cilient, the flower nnd cookery events, which wHie in the Duvauchelle Hall, being a great improvement to the tents on the ground. The ground itself was in good condition, and the ring", jumps, etc., wero well prepared for the i ocasion. The Association has made an endeavour ! to extend its scope this year by the addition (of iluwt-r classes' and when it becomes finan ciall stronger it is hoped that a good many other fe.ture will be introduced which will include cattle, shaep and pig classes. The cookery and domestic produce sections could bo extended considerably without much additional cost in prize money, and would make the domestic and other produce sections far more attractive. The member' ship of the Association has been steadily urowing, and now embraces some 123 rnenr bore, while it is hoped that ac time goes on this will be considerably amplified. The executive look forward it > the time when they will be übie to secure a ground of their own, and extend t'ho scope of the Show so as to bring the programme on a par with other Agricultural and Pastoral Assnß. j It is always admitted that the horse classQ [i of the show are a striking indication of the ! splendid stamp of hack bred on the Penin , j sula, and, considering the email area from j which exhibits are drawn, the hersos ihown j nt the show yesterday are a credit to i. Penin-ula farmers. The hor-e, especially the j htok is gonerall- used on the Peninsula thht j i it ia not surprising that a good deal j i of enthusiasm is tak n in horse breeding, j ' In past years thera have been noted bugs J ]
which have left thnir mark among Peninsula horses, notably Victor, one of (he finest stuv.p that ever left stock in the whole country. His stock have taken prizes in j every show ring in the country, and still at a j Pennsua Show there is a large sprinkling of his 'stock in the rinp. There are other sires which have left good stock, such ns Washington, Cnstashore, Londesbro , Kent Audit. Tatiow, Naboeklisli,. Woodbnrn Chipf, and of the more recent times Currngbmure, General Syinor/s and Dauntless (a Victor colt). Messrs Gordon Stoddart and J. Scott, who carried out the arduous task of judging with satisfaction to all concerned, considered that the hacks were a firet class lot, tho 15 stone hacks being hard to beat anywhere, while the winners in the cobs were ex-ra Rood. In the 11 and 13 stone hack classes there were some really fine animals, but some of the exhibitors would have been bettor in' the harness classes The lady's hack class was a Strang one In (he harness classes they considered' the daisy cart horse or mare class really good, and the pony class a splendid lot The Pen insula does not breed draught horses, but the judge remarked that the light heavy horses or those used on the Peninsula hill sides were very good of their class, though there was not a draught thai would be looked on In a Plains Show ring A man who has been among Peninsula horses for many years now considered that yesterday's show of horses was no doubt one of the best Shows for a number of years The animals wero all in good order, and exhibitors had taken a lot of trouble to get them up The classes of light horses were especially a great improvement on the last two years, though they were a few oE the old exhibits which cnuld not be ignored by the judge, and still held tbeir own Hβ considered the daisy cart horse or mare class included as .fine a 'ot as would be exhibited at any show iThe j.'iu; class 143 to 15"2 hands was also are liiialiably good class [ One of the most pleasing featurgs about the horse classes was the splendid competi lion for a'most every olass Many classes filled wpII this year which have in former years allowed for no competition, and the Association in revising their programme have coneiderablyimprovpd it and allowed for every clas3 that is suitable for hor?es likely to be shown at this Show One little matter which the exhibitor should be careful about ia the measuring of his horse Yesterday on two or three occasions exhibitors were not quite up to the standard end had to be disap pointed The number of entries in the horse classes constitute a record for the Show, and shouli 1 be gratifying to the Association The tota was 102 compared with 100 in 1913 and 131 in 1912 Tho attendance at the Show was greatl; affected by the Akaroa people not caring t< cross the harbour by oil launoh with such i strong southerly blowing, and although then i was a whole holiday observrd by Rhop I keepers and echolos, only a sprinkling ; attended. The bays attendance was, how , ' ever, very good, and the gate money ; amounted to £18, compared with £17 8s 6d iv 1913 and £21 Ss in 11)12. The Aseocia , j tion is, however, receiving spleddid support, I which it thoroughly deserves, and in a few ' years' time it should be strong enough to be able to make it a • noted ' Canterbury show. The Duvauchelle Show is always a very pleasant outing and our best Peninsula gathering, and it is gratifying to see the general interest that continues to 1 be taken in it. ' The thanks of the members of the i Association are due to the president (Mr F. ;W. Williams) and his officers for the very i efficient way in which the show was carried i out. The honorary secretary (Mr G H. i O'Cal ! aghan) is painßtakingnnd thorough in '■ all his work, and deserves the thanks of ! all interested in the show. The whole I work of the show, both the preparation oi j the ground and the oarrying out of the i show yesterday was well bandied by the j executive. Everything went off smoothly. j A fine luncheon was provided at the Somerset Hotel by Mr Jos. Gaskin for the i flicials and visiters, The thanks of the Association are due to the judges in the horee classes and domestic p.oduce. Id the flower section there were not as many entries as might be anticipated, but, no dnubt, the rain and rough wind militated against exhibitors bringing flowers. A feature of the show was the beautiful astortmeDt of roses shown by Mr F. Armstrong, of Akaroa. The Association was fortunate in seciring Mr Lowe as judge in this section. There were only four classes for vegetables, and these were well filled. The entry for the cookery classss was disappointing, being far short of those shown last year, The quality of the exhibits was of a high order, but in many classes there was no competition at all* The committee expected to have a good entry in this section, but for some reason the support given was very poor. Mrs Bell and Mr Davis kindly acted a? judges in this section. PRIZE LIST Hackney Yearling foaled since July, 1913 First prize £1 Is, second 10s 6d. It. Gunning'e eh fby Willowwood ..
