With the record numbers entered in the 2019 show classes. The
committee of the BBGS are once again offering the Buddy Scheme to
any member who may wish to gain an insight into attending a show,
each member will be paired with an exhibitor to assist with and learn
about preparation and etiquette which is needed for a show day.

We understand it can be daunting to those who have never entered a
goat class before, so to gain that insight without them having to take
their own goats to a show, once again we are pairing up members
with a ‘Buddy’ exhibitor, to assist them gain experience. This we
hope this will put them in good stead for exhibiting their own goats at
a later stage or even in 2020.

On the evening prior to the show day or morning of the show
depending on each individuals availability and accommodation, you
will meet up with your Buddy and experience the days events with the
knowledge that there is someone on hand to answer any questions
along the way. It will be a great opportunity to get hands with the
goats in a relaxed atmosphere as well as getting to know all the other

There will be limited spaces available, so this is run on a first come
first served basis.
