Horse For Sale

kate_horse117.1hh 10 year old striking coloured mare by Mars.
Sad reluctant sale of this quality middle weight. Having been in the same home from weaning puzzle is a great family friend. She  is lovely to handle, enjoys attention, grooming and being fussed over.

 

 

kate_horse2

She has taken part in sponsored/fun rides, been shown and enjoyed regular lessons with the local riding club.
Puzzle has been professionally schooled and works in a lovely soft outline. She loves to jump and would make a super riding club all rounder/ hunter. she would ideally suit a taller lady or would happily carry a gentleman. £4500

For more information, please contact: Kate Ludden 07859922122

Jockeys take one of the jumps in the ‘Mixed Open’ race

The Ashford Valley Tickham Hunt held a very successful Point to point meeting at Charing on Easter Saturday. The event was well attended despite the chilly weather. Thank you to Rob Harrison for all his hard work organising the event. Neil Staines and Frank Fordham worked hard preparing the jumps and generally making sure the course was fit for racing.

Sue Palmer and Christina Back were part of huge team of volunteers that work tirelessly in the background to make sure the day would go seamlessly. Thank you all of you, you know who you are! The hard work of the ‘Hunt ‘Bakers’ brought in record taking on the cake stall. Thank you to everyone who baked cakes etc.

We must not forget the many visitors who came to support the Hunt and enjoy the racing. Thank for your support. ;-)

“See you all next year”
