Margaret Peverley and Marian Draper were delighted to present a cheque for £250 to Claire Phillips, Manager of World Horse Welfare’s Glenda Spooner Farm near Somerton.
This was money from the Sam Griffiths evening earlier this year. The evening started with Jeremy Greenop from RNAS Yeovilton talking about low flying helicopter activity and the importance of wearing HiViz for rider safety. This was followed by an entertaining and informative talk from Sam Griffiths, the Australian Olympic event rider who is based locally at Gillingham.

By popular demand – Jane will be taking four sessions, starting at 10am. Each session will last for approximately 90 minutes. Please be… honest about your ability as it will help everyone if we grade the sessions correctly. We can obviously tailor classes, depending on the demand for various activities, but it was thought that they would include some pole exercises and small grids with the later classes having more emphasis on the jumping and focusing on technique and accuracy which would be useful for cross country. All abilities catered for – young horses – novice riders – just be honest and we can fit you in to the correct group and you will undoubtedly enjoy your lesson.
Bookings will be taken on a ‘first come’ basis and a waiting list will be kept. Withdrawals after 7th February will be charged unless the place can be filled. EVERYONE is also REQUIRED to provide a helper for a session or help in another session themselves (moving jumps, poles etc). Please also leave a contact telephone number in case of emergency/accident on the day.
Venue: Kingfisher Equestrian, Lovington. BA7 7PS
