Time to get back on the horse, as they say (and as we enjoy) and work off that festive food. There is lots of events going on this week to get into that New Year, New You 2018! Been meaning to dust off the trailer and get out and about? Come and pay us a visit and get those New Year Resolutions on the go.
We had a hugely successful Winter Wonderland Show Jumping competition last Sunday with over 100 entries! This was run by our FdSc Equine Performance Science Students who did a fantastic job and really worked hard for their chosen charity of the day which was Macmillian Cancer Support. Thank you to everyone who turned up and thank you for your continued patience throughout the day.
This week we have our usual lessons continuing with our BHS courses running in the evenings. There is still space for more on the Stage 2 course, just call us for more details. On Wednesday there is slot jumping and clear round in the outdoor school with a full set of show jumps and working hunter fences. In the evening there is our latest in the lecture series, a talk from Equine Physiotherapist Clair Andrews and McTimoney Manipulation Therapist Kate Cox. Together they will be discussing Vet Physiotherapy and McTimoney Animal Manipulation which will be a fascinating insight into how they work with our horses and what we can do to help. Event happening at Brooksby Equestrian Centre, tickets at £5 available on the door or from Melton Theatre Website. Come along and have a cup of coffee with a biscuit and sit back and enjoy!
