21 July 2021Fun XC Pickafence - Sunday 25th July
It's been decided to hold another Pick-a-Fence event this Sunday 25th July, with ALL proceeds going towards the costs of running the Riding the Marches (which will hopefully go ahead this year - to be confirmed).
Toots from Hilltoft Peedie Ponies has kindly offered to sponsor all the rosettes.
This will be a fun event and if there are any fences you don't like - just miss them out! There are classes from Poles up to 90cm so something for everyone - it will start with the 90cm Class..
A Schedule of the Classes and the Rules can be found on the link above. Entries by email/messenger to Christina Bichan and pay on the day (please have the correct money).
As well as needing enough competitiors to go ahead, HELPERS (Jump Judges etc) are also required, so anyone who's available on Sunday please let Chrissy know by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or by FB messenger.
Entries and Offers of Help should be sent in by Friday morning, then a decision will be made if it can go ahead, so please don't delay with your messaging.
