I would just like to thank all the staff involved in the Christmas show on Sunday 27th December. The riders are a credit to you all.
As parents we watched and listened to all the riders as they were waiting to compete in their chosen events, every one of them had praise for each other, no matter how big/small rider and horse. Whether it was their first time competing or they had done several.
Fab day! Thank you! Looking forward to watching more
