The Jack Shearn & Jennie Bailey Trophy
For outstanding contribution to the Bristol & Somerset Area.
HISTORY - Jack Shearn was Jenny Bailey (nee Shearn) dad's, Jack was a judge and ran Marksbury horse show for many years, (which was a big show back then) and a great supporter of both Jenny and British Showjumping.
Jenny Baily (nee Shearn) was very successful whist competing at both juniors and seniors British Showjumping events. She was a judge, Bristol & Somerset Area Representative, Secretary of SWSJC (in its Bicton heyday) and for many years and helped run Marksbury horse show with her father. Jenny was instrumental in teaching new judges. She was a brilliant lady if not a bit scary at times!
Jenny started the the trophy back in 1995 in memory of her father who was a great support of show jumping and the Bristol & Somerset Area. Jenny’s name was added in 2003 following her sudden death at the young age of 55.
The idea behind the trophy was to present it to someone who had contributed to the Bristol & Somerset Area on an annual basis.
