The long journey from Ballymoney proved very successful for the Hanna family from Macfin.

They won the Supreme Champion Clydesdale at this year’s Royal Highland Show with their home-bred mare Macfin Diamond Queen, on her first outing of the year.

She is a four years old by Glebeview Sir Charles out of Kirkhouse Amazing Grace.

Diamond Queen took the top honours in the Clydesdale Section winning the Cawdor Cup and Medcalf Cups, to name but a few.

She was given the nod for Overall Champion by Willie Clark and the Clydesdale Male Judge, Neil Christie.

On Friday Diamond Queen also went on to take the “Sanderson Trophy” for the Best Scottish Native Horse or Pony.

This then concluded with her taking the top accolade, the “Queen’s Cup” which circulates the beef, dairy, sheep and Heavy Horse Section each year.

Her owners were absolutely delighted with the outstanding accolades and feel honoured to have such amazing achievements which will sit proud of place in their home.
