Scots certainly made their presence at this year's Great Yorkshire Show by taking various breed championships and inter-breed titles back across the Border following the four-day event.

With a record number of sheep and several new sections, it was another specular week at Harrogate.

A new sheepdog trial section proved a huge hit with the public, with the Scots again flying the flag in the young handlers section, when 16-year-old Tyler Mckinlay, from Biggar, and her dog, Mel, landed a big win. The senior title was presented to Peter Morgan, of Co Down, in Ireland, with his dog Mosse.

Charles Mills, show director, said: “This has been a wonderful four days, which has seen some of the finest animals in the country compete.

"A Royal visit from the Princess Royal, two world cattle congresses, record breaking sheep numbers, sheep dog trials in the Main Ring and a new chat show on the GYS Stage are just a flavour of some of what we’ve hosted this week and we now look forward to planning the 2023 edition.”
