Rosedale Show 2020

With great regret, the Rosedale Show Committee has announced that the Show has been cancelled for this year. There were just too many forward financial commitments to be made now which could be put at risk later if any Wuhan Flu measures are still in place in August, as now seems likely from government forecasts.

Heavy Horses from 2019

Fingers crossed and see you all in 2021!
