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.

Dogs Trust – This dog rescue charity helps man’s best friend.

Making their annual appearance at the Pembrokeshire County Show, you may be surprised to know that Dogs Trust (formerly known as National Canine Defence League) has been helping dogs for over 125 years. The Trust was founded in 1891 by Lady Gertrude Stock, during a meeting at the first ever Crufts show, and is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK.

Over the years they have campaigned tirelessly on issues such as prolonged chaining, unnecessary muzzling and vivisection. They also came up with the famous slogan ‘A dog is for life, not just for Christmas’ to help reduce the number of abandoned dogs after the festive period and more recently campaigned with the slogan ‘Dogs Trust Never Put A Healthy Dog Down’.
