We are well into the winter season now even if it is still technically autumn. The indoor venues come into their own and there is quite a busy programme of events in the county (and elsewhere) throughout the winter. For many the highlight though is the annual Show Jumping spectacular at Olympia with many coach parties going from Lincolnshire to London to enjoy this fantastic show. There will never be a replacement for Olympia but what are the chances of a New Year spectacular here in our county? I can just picture a marvellous event with a New Year’s Day Strauss concert to play between equestrian attractions and competitions. Anyone interested?
The Norton Disney Horse Trials once again rounded off the eventing season for many with its usual feelgood factor.
As the best placed Brit at this year’s Badminton Horse Trials, eventer Ros Canter’s star is truly on the rise and now she’s hoping for further success by securing a place in Team GB for the European Championships later this year.
