The event, which is organised by the Glasgow Agricultural Society, will be held at a new venue, Morris Equestrian Centre, on March 3, which will allow for overnight stabling and horse box stances for those travelling from far afield. 

In charge of placing the Clydesdale females will be Jim Greenhill, Upper Tulloes, and Alistair King, of the Cotebrook Shire Horse Centre, while judging the males will be Yvonne Hanna, of the Northern Irish Macfin stud, and Jim Ingram, from Drumoak. 

Acting as umpire as well as judge of the gelding and young handlers will be Allan Craig. 

Among the Highland ponies, Willie Nelson is the man in charge while Mrs Sandra Seward, Grogwynion, and Miss Di Johnston, Parlington Stud, will place the Shetland pony standards and miniatures, respectively. 

Judging the re-introduced Mountain and Moorland classes will be Ms Pat Rennie, of the Lomondside Stud, Drymen.
