    Showjumping Show 20th September

    A big thank you to all who attended the show on Sunday, we hope you enjoyed the day, our SJ shows have been work in progress this year, a lot has been learnt and at times it has been testing to say the least. Looking forward to next year, we will introduce qualifiers and it is hoped some further changes to our usual menu of events.
    Special thanks go to our helpers, Minda Wigley course builder, Maggie Dickinson, Angie Masterson, Richard Blenkinsop and his little helper Finlay, Phoebe Mather and Terri Holmes for being with us all day and finally Sue Howes and Debbie Barham our afternoon helpers. We would also like to thank those who stayed behind to help bring in the jumps and anybody else who pitched in during the day that we may have overlooked.
    The results of the day can be found here.
