Lingfield Park Racecourse have invited us to have another fundraising day, this time at their Race Meeting on Saturday, 5th April.  It is a special ‘Discover Racing Family Day’, on the first day of the school holidays, so we hope that lots of people will come along to meet us.  Lingfield Park are inviting racegoers to learn all there is to know about racing as they celebrate the “Sport of Kings”, with Pony rides, racecourse tours and a spectacular display from Horse Whisperer Gary Witheford. There will be 7 live races and plenty of free family entertainment. Plus, they’ll be showing the world’s most famous race, The Aintree Grand National, live on the big screen.  Gates will open at 12 noon.  See you there!

At our December Fun Day, we had a surprise visit from Father Christmas, accompanied by an elf and one of the Lions from East Grinstead.  All the children enjoyed a short riding session and were then delighted to meet Father Christmas and his friends.  Our thanks go to East Grinstead Lions for arranging for Father Christmas to visit.

National Championships, Hartpury

AdamatNationals13Having qualified at the Regional Championships, our rider Adam Lester took part in the National Championships on one of the hottest days of the year.  Riding our pony Liquorice, Adam came 4th in the Show Jumping, 3rd in the dressage, 2nd in the Countryside Challenge, and 2nd overall.  It was 34 degrees in the arena, and in a jacket and tie it must have been exhausting.  Well done, Adam!

The Sun shone on us for Fun Day this year and we were delighted to welcome some of our sponsors and supporters to join us for the day. Most of our schools attended, and enjoyed playing games on horseback.  Our volunteers enjoyed themselves too!  The annual prizes were presented by our Chairman, James Baxter, and every child received a rosette for effort during the year.

For the third year running, our rider Adam Lester, riding one of our own ponies Liquorice, has qualified for the National Championships at Hartpury in Gloucestershire.  The qualifying took place at the Regional Challenge, held in early May at Felbridge Showground.  Adam and Liquorice won the Countryside Challenge qualifier, the Overall Countryside Challenge, the Combined, and came second in the dressage.  They also won the tack and turnout.  Well done Adam!
