Pembrokeshire County Show, 2016
Whilst at the County Show, we had the opportunity to speak with Mr Mark Reed, in his first year as Honorary Director of The Main Ring, and his assistant, Lady Ambassador (2015), Ms Caryl Warlow, of The Pembrokeshire Agricultural Society.
“Other shows of this kind are all about walking sticks and fly fishing…..This is still mainly agriculture. There’s a good standard of stock here.”
Mark Reed – Honorary Director (Equine) – #PembsShow16 – A truly agricultural show
Mark has worked up to the role as Honorary Director, over a few years. He was a Show Steward as a teenager and was promoted to Chief Steward for Ponies at 18. He had a break for a couple of years because of work commitments but, as more senior people retired, he came back to help run the main ring. That work helped prepare him for this year, his first as Equine Director.
