Kelso couple Lorna and David Aylward and Hawick rider Hilary Mactaggart proved in unbeatable form at Saturday’s Central and West Fife Show, near Kelty, returning to the Borders with a clutch of silverware and rosettes.

David showed home-bred three-year-old Bordergrove Honolulu to take supreme hunter honours, after standing champion in-hand sports horse, champion in-hand horse, and champion in-hand hunter.

The couple also celebrated success with Bordergrove Helsinki, shown by Zoe Thomson, to finish reserve in-hand horse and reserve in-hand hunter.

Hilary took the ridden hunter championship with her lightweight winner Windsor Wood, and then stood reserve supreme.

She also headed the small hunter class riding former Horse of the Year Show victor Harley Street, who was reserve ridden hunter to his stablemate.
