Sponsorship is the lifeblood of community events like the Tenterfield Show, and the Show Society recently took the opportunity to formally recognise one of its long-term supporters by presenting sponsor Sexton & Green with a memento of its participation.

Show jumping steward Noel Cossins presented Sexton & Green’s Graeme Rossington with a framed print of William Wood on his mount Cupcake jumping at last year’s show. Sexton & Green have been supporting the show for the past 43 years, recently extending that support to sponsor the speciality 6-bar jumping event.

Mr Cossins said the event is both a crowd-pleaser and a spectacular test of horsemanship.
