June Horsfall - Obituary

Posted: Thu 9th February 2017

June Horsfall


The Showing world lost a kind and loyal supporter when Owner, Breeder and Sponsor June Horsfall passed away on 28th January - the same day as her husband David. They would have been married for 70 years in September.


Born in Steeton, West Yorkshire June was educated at home by her austere grandmother before attending Evendine College, Malvern.


Her father Sam Clough was awarded the MC for gallantry in the war and represented GB in the Bobsleigh team and two of her Uncles became MPs. However the family interest was horses and from a child June hunted with the Craven Hunt ( now the Pendle Forest and Craven)- her grandfather Robert Proctor was a past Master .Later when she was married, June hunted with the Vale of Lune and hosted a meet at her Borwick home for over 20 years.


During the war June joined the Wrens but had a rude awakening when she was asked to scrub a floor for the first time! She went on to be a part of the Bletchley code breaking team at Finchley Park.


In the late 1950’s she bred Italian greyhounds and Staffordshire Bull Terriers and twice judged at Crufts. A few years later, she turned her attention to breeding Show Ponies and Shetlands. The homebred Dennybeck Fine Feathers was Reserve Pony of the Year at Wembley in 1987 and Dennybeck Fancy Me foaled the 2009 HOYS Supreme Pony – Greylands Maid in the Dark.


June truly loved her ponies and travelled across the country to watch them compete and accepted the triumphs and occasional disasters with equal aplomb. After the classes, there was always a small gift and a thank you for the jockey and a packet of polo mints for the pony.


Her most prolific winner was Deaconwood Goldprint – believed to be the most successful dun show pony of all time – who won the RIHS championship in 1999 and 2002 as well as being twice victorious in the 13.2hh section at HOYS in 1998 and 2000. June also owned Spinningdale Arabella who claimed similar honours in the 14.2 class at Wembley in 1996.


June was also a very generous sponsor and her name and Dennybeck prefix could be seen in schedules and catalogues at many shows including RIHS and the BSPS Championships. Latterly, she sponsored the Part Bred Anglo Arab £1000 Final at Arena UK.


June was a professional owner of the old school and will be sadly missed at the ringside.
