July 21st – Points Show – Postponed

Due to the confirmed cases of equine flu in the show ground area the committee have made the decision to postpone the 21st July show.

We hope everyone understands our decision but feel we need to try our best to stop the spread of the disease and we only have the animals welfare in mind.

Future shows will require all exhibitors have up to date vaccinations (minimum of 1st two).

The rescheduled date will be released next week when we have confirmation of field booking etc.

Again we apologise for the postponement.
