Commenting on the campaign, Royal Highland Show Manager, David Jackson said: “Jennifer is simply a stunning horse and a fitting star to feature in the advertising campaign to promote Scotland’s premier agricultural show. The Show brings together the country’s best from food to shopping to livestock. Initial feedback on the creative is that the iconic native breed of a Clydesdale will create the desired impact and encourage the public to come and experience the best Scotland has to offer.”
Breeder Ronnie Black is naturally proud that his prodigy has been chosen as the show pin up for the 177th event. Ronnie said: “Jennifer is from a long line of Royal Highland Show champions and my family and I are delighted that she is featuring in the advertising campaign. While Jennifer will not be at the Show as she will hopefully be caring for her newborn foal, other members of her family will be flying the flag for the Collessie champion.
“The Clydesdale is a breed of draught horse derived from the farm horses of Clydesdale which is in existence thanks to a committed number of breeders who invest time and passion into protecting the future of this beautiful native breed. There is no better showcase to see this magnificent animal than at the Royal Highland Show”
