Easter Hall Park Newsletter 2012
What a wet year it has been and sadly with all the rain in the summer this put a stop to our carriage driving event, due to such waterlogged ground we regrettably had to cancel, however we have still had a very busy year and still were able to run nearly all of our scheduled events. We managed to get a day of sunshine for our August show with clear round jumping, poles, dressage and in hand classes with lots of rosettes won. Well done to all those who took part.
As with every year we have had ups and downs, we said a sad farewell to Connie and Simon who both passed away peacefully and will be fondly remembered by all. A tribute to Simon written by Chloe has been posted on our notice board, please do have a read.
However we were very pleased to announce our 2 new arrivals, Easter and King born earlier this year from Topsy and Annie, they have grown very rapidly and have now just been weaned and are doing really well.
This year was a very special year as we had the BBC filming here for “Escape to the Country”, Easter Hall Park is going to be on T.V! Watch this space for the date and time of airing.
We were also lucky enough to be chosen for the “Take Back The Reins” campaign and have run our first course already this year with a new one to start in January, this is for riders and carriage drivers of all ages and abilities either new to the sport or returning.
Congratulations to Abbie and Scott who achieved their UKCC1 and Rachel with UKCC2.
