2017 Ladies Side Saddle Horse of the Year Championship

The Ladies Side Saddle Horse of the Year Championship has replaced the Ladies Hunter of the Year Championship. The final will be held at the prestigious Horse of the Year Show held at Birmingham NEC in October.

Qualifying classes will be open to Hacks, Cobs, Maxi Cobs, Riding Horses, as well as Hunters, registered with the British Show Horse Association, ridden side saddle by a lady.

Anthony O'Keefe Portraits will again present the Winner of The Great Scot! National Side Saddle Show Qualifying Class, sponsored by Juniper Green Organic Gin, with a Commissioned Portrait of Horse and Rider.

The aim of this class is to encourage greater participation in the class and to make it appeal to a wider audience. The Championship and Qualifiers will be under the administration of the British Show Horse Association, and horses will be judged according to their type, conformation, manners and their suitability to be ridden side saddle.

If you have a Hack, Cob, Maxi Cob, Riding Horse or Hunter and would like to take part in this Championship, please visit the British Show Horse Association website www.britishshowhorse.org or the Horse of the Year Show website www.hoys.co.uk, for further details and information.

Capturing the Beauty and Elegance of Side Saddle Riding in Oils

It was with the greatest pleasure that I attended the first Side Saddle Show at Addington Manor in August 2015 with a selection of my paintings. The weather was glorious; the quality of riding exceptional, our equine friends wonderful and from a spectator’s perspective the whole event was a pure joy.

I offered the winner of The HOYS Ladies Side Saddle Qualifier a portrait of horse and rider, which we exhibited at the Horse of the Year Show. I ended up painting two portraits, one a close up portrait and the other in the setting of Addington Manor. Sophie Lane riding Conspiracy Theory owned by Rosamund Lane won the prize, closely followed by Lauren Hill riding Ark Royal.  They both qualified for HOYS and stopped by my stand for a chat. Exhibiting the paintings at HOYS was a great success with countless people recognising Sophie and Conspiracy Theory, with one little girl asking if Sophie was famous (“well she is now” I said). The paintings also generated a great deal of interest in side saddle riding from the general public and riders, which I hope encourages others to take it up.



I offered the same prize at the 2016 HOYS Qualifier at The National Side Saddle Show and I am going to do so again in 2017.

The 2015 and 2016 shows provided me with truck loads of inspiration to paint more side saddle subjects and between commissions I’ve been painting these and look forward to exhibiting them in August.  You may recognise a few riders and horses.

Many thanks to the National Show Organisers, Competitors, Helpers and Fellow Trade Stand Holders for making Chris and I so welcome.
