WINNER, Leah Marshall, accepting her prize from Thimbleby & Shorland Director, Chris Boreham

Thimbleby & Shorland sponsored Best Non-Traditional Turnout of the Year for 2018


The winner this year was Leah Marshall

Excerpt from Carriage Driving Awards about Leah:
Leah entirely home produces her own ponies. Leah’s non-traditional vehicle is a two-wheeler, finished in black and maroon paintwork with black harness and reins, although the hand held ends are brown, for a more pleasing look. Her Dunn & Co pig skin hat belonged to her great grandfather. The rest of her attire is chosen with great care to contrast her bay pony and the colour of the vehicle. When Leah competes, it is with huge support from her family, particularly her mother and grandad. Leah always hopes to win, more from them than herself.

Chris Boreham, T&S Director, said “We are very pleased to support Carriage Driving Magazine with their Awards in recognition of those who do so much for the sport, and hope that the initiative goes from strength to strength, putting the sport more firmly on the map.”
