On the 25th April 2009 I was delighted to judge in the Czech Republic at the 3rd Annual Welsh Breeders show.  Held just outside the beautiful city of Prague and hosted by Ludvik Filipek of the Stonecastle Stud, Ritka, we were blessed with glorious sunshine for the whole weekend.

My overall adult champion was the Section D stallion Vazan Cymro Du from the Vazan Stud.  By H-S Lord Thomas and out of Cloigen Crackling Candy (Menai Sparkling Magic) this striking 4yo combined his overall good looks with plenty of bone and feather and very straight action.

Reserve Adult Champion was awarded to the Section C Stallion Swalesmoor Tango.  By Swalesmoor Brenin Aur and out of Swalesmoor Furietta (Parc Lucky Jim) he is now owned by the Angelis Stud but had only been with them for 3 weeks prior to the show.  He was a pony with extremely powerful action and with his colouring, foot and feather was very much to my liking.

Our thanks to everyone that showed such kindness to us over the weekend, but especially to Jana Smerdova for translating, to Ludvik Filipek and Martina Ludvickova for their hospitality and to Mojmir Fiala for inviting us and for taking two days out of his busy schedule to show us some of his country.
