This is our second serious year in running a non qualifying class with large cash prizes. The ethos of the class is to give competitors the chance to win cash prizes which may well make a difference - a new saddle, training sessons, new physio equipment or attendance, re seeding a paddock. Also the fact that keeping, preparing, showing and spectatoring at shows is a healthy lifestle - the fresh air and exercise that we all need.
This year the class is open to Registered Mountain and Moorlands (in hand and ridden)in the UK. Last year we had over 148cms ridden into the various showing Sections - Hunter, Hack, Competition Horse, ex racehorse, etc. and next year it will be part breds. Obviously the class with its unique formula and cash prizes and the fact that each year will give the who showing spectrum a chance to compete - we are now listening to requests for 2012 and the general theme seems to be what about Native horses, Native Heavy Horse Breeds, Driving, Miniatures and Foreign Breeds. We have no problem with the concept at all and we are extremely fortunate that we receive these ideas. Assuming we go ahead with this - are we missing something a Section? Do you have any ideas? Obviously in 2013 we would wish an to have a class where previous phase winners could come back and go again for the prize monies - the clash of the Titans!!!! this leads us to other areas - does anyone have any new ideas of contacting potential sponsors. Our base of sponsors are so loyal we can hardly believe our good fortune but we will need to increase of base to keep uping the cash or secondary - any in kind prizes. The David Broome Equestrian Centre has the space and facilities for us to run any class so space and facilities are now on issue. The bottom line is the generousity of Sponsors and the attendance of the spectators. Any input would be appreciated:???:
We now have a Sponsors for the Champion at 1500 guineas and 500 Guineas for the reserve and many other breed prizes. We shall keep updating this site as we obtain more Sponsorship
Thank you Brunel Professional Risks of Bristol, Waunarw Showing yard of Magor and Twyn Construction of Newport, Gwent for the major prizes thus far. We shall certainly be added more

Mr Russell Marks
Mr Russell Marks has been named as one of the judges for the class.
The prior finalists class which will be held before the Phase 3 of the GwynBeth
now has entries. the Idea of this class is not only to appreciate past competitors and enjoy them again as very often on the winning night, the moment passes and we as spectators often think "I wish there was more time to just look at the winners but times once the prizes are given they have to leave the ring".
We applaud and appreciate the effort made in coming back - thank you 2008 and 2009 GwynBeth Competitors.
As the theme this year is based around promoting the good health issues in caring and sharing with equines and you feel you would like to contribute as a sponsor to this class please do send me a personal message or reply here and I can send you full details of what we will do for you.
As a final thought, you may well be one of these competitors in years to come and hopefully we will be still chasing for sponsors on your behalf.
Regards and Thanks
