BUCHAN Riding Club held their Spring show and jumpting competition at Aden Park, Mintlaw, recently.

All classes had good entry numbers and it was nice to see so many supporters and spectators there to encourage the riders.

Covering all ages up to adult, the groups were well contested and several jump-offs were required to determine the winners.
