Very well done to all who took part and to Gemma Pye for judging all the classes.  Thanks also to helpers and committee members without whom these shows couldn’t run.

Our next show is on 22nd September and as always we are looking for help, then closely followed by the Area RC Dressage and Combined Training which we are running on Sunday 6th October at Brook Farm.  Please come forward if you can offer help on either of those days, you will be given a voucher for a free entry to one of our shows.
