Julie Rickwood-Gan, HAPPA’s Development Officer explains “It was lovely to see so many people with their canine companions come along and participate for fun. The junior handler’s class was especially great to see; so many young people who clearly love their dog. Everyone who attended had a fabulous time, with many going away with rosettes or prizes. A special thank you must go to the judge for the day Jean Quinn, all the HAPPA Ambassadors who helped run the event, Burnley Borough Council, Pets at Home and everyone who attended to make this another fantastic Show.”
Over £730 was raised for HAPPA to allow the Charity to continue to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome horses, ponies and donkeys.
