***Helmingham 2022***

What an epic day!!!!

My news feed is full of photos of everyone’s gorgeous horses and ponies having fun and making memories at Helmingham.

I honestly cannot remember the last time I saw classes at a local show as big as they were today, full of pure quality. THANK YOU to everyone single competitor for supporting our event you were all amazing. So many comments about the fantastic atmosphere which is down to you guys, you help make it.

Our judges certainly earned their lunches today a tough job but they were all superb giving each person their time to shine.

The amazing team of not just the committee but members & non-members doing their bit and not forgetting every other family or friend who gets roped into helping out. It ran so smoothly today, team work makes the dream work!

We are so lucky to have also have a huge band of very generous and supportive sponsors who really do make a difference to us being able to put on the kind of show we do.

Everyone was kept well fed, photographed and had somewhere to spend their prize money and the first aid was on point too.

As always I cannot thank everyone enough, I do hope I caught most of you to personally say it but if not please know how grateful we are.

Till next year!!

Training

(open to Members and Non Members)

Hi I've just added a new training day jumping with Anne Gayfer 15th May.

Jump training at the Park Farm Arena in Stonham Aspal IP14 6AS. It's a large outdoor school with a great set of jumps.

Groups of 3 training at a similar height - please let me (Lynn Eldrett) know your jumping height.

10am to 1pm.

1 hour sessions.

£20 each for members £25 for non-members.

Anne is a great teacher and very popular. She is happy to cover everything from cross poles up to 90cm courses on the day, depending on demand. It's the day after the Helmingham Show so may appeal to people not going to the show.

Open to book on webcollect now.
