A stalwart of the heavy horse world has said that the standard of entries at this year’s Kintyre Agricultural Show was on par with those of the Royal Highland Show.

Malcolm McFadyen, who judged the Clydesdale horse classes at this year’s show, has attended the event for the last 50 years and says he thinks this year’s was the best yet.

There were five entries competing for the Duncan MacKinnon Trophy in the harness class.

Mr McFadyen said: ‘They were professionally turned out complete with decorations.

‘Over the years, I have judged the harness class at the Royal Highland Show four times and the entries forward at the Kintyre show were of Highland Show standard. They did the show proud.’
