Judi 2

Dame Judi Dench, our patron, attended fun day this year and was treated to an display of dressage and show jumping by our disabled rider Simon Blight on his beautifully turned out horses.

The children from St Stephen’s School, South Godstone, also gave a display of their riding skills and many of their parents attended to watch them.

It was a sunny day until the presentation of the annual awards when the rain came down in buckets!  Dame Judi bravely carried on and every child received a rosette, and various trophies were awarded to the best riders of the year.

A number of our supporters attended and Dame Judi presented Certificates of Appreciation, personally signed, to East Grinstead Lions Club, Eddie Ottewell, The Fox and Hounds, South Godstone and Graham Keetley.

There was then a special display for Dame Judi—her retired racehorse Smokey Oakey, who now lives at Little Brook, took a turn or two around the indoor school and was rewarded with a pack of polo mints!
