Vanessa Pickens and Rubinesque take out the Supreme Champion Animal of The Show.
Ever since she was a little girl, Vanessa Pickens of Springston has dreamed about winning the Supreme Champion Animal of The Show.
Today her dream was realised when she took out the prestigious prize, following a swag of other awards, with her horse Rubinesque.
Vanessa says temperament is what makes the six-year-old mare so special.
“She’s just such a kind, generous, beautiful natured horse. We call her the black Labrador of the family.
“For me, the most special thing about winning today is that I used to come to The Show when I was a little girl and watch the award being presented. I just always dreamed of winning – that’s why it means so much to me.”
