Dormansland Horse & Dog Show

September 4, 2023 at 12:04 pm

The Dormansland Horse and Dog Show have been long term supporters and we are very grateful to them. We had a stand this year and met lots of friends, old and new. It was a lovely hot sunny day and the show was a great success, with lots of competitors, both equine and canine (with their riders and handlers. We particularly enjoyed the family atmosphere of the show.

We took Guy and Star to the National Championships at Hartpury this year, along with four riders from our Thursday morning second lesson.

We all got soaked to the bone but it was well worth it.

Our First rider finished 3rd in his class.

Our Second rider won his class.

Our Third rider won her class and was National Class Champion.

Our Fourth rider won his class and was also National Class Champion.

Well done and huge congratulations to all our riders and huge thanks to all those who helped on the day.

MG Car Club fantastic donation

April 12, 2023 at 4:59 pm

Our good friends at the MG Car Club Sussex Wanderers have given us a fantastic donation of £2,300 raised from collections at their meetings during 2022. Each month they set off on a jolly in their wonderful cars, ending up with a lunch at a pub, where the hat is passed round. The members are very generous and we are very grateful to them.

On 2nd February Ursula Griffiths came to watch a lesson with some of the members and their cars, and to hand over the cheque. (Yes we know the one in the middle isn’t an MG – it sneaked in!)
