WORKING HUNTER 18 MAY 2008

WH course

Competitors were greeted by fine weather and a set of revamped Working Hunter fences.

Proprietors, Rosemary Brown and David Ralston, have always had an aim to encourage up and coming riders of all ages, and experience, to gain confidence by competing in the friendly atmosphere and picturesque surroundings at Easterton.

This years course was spacious and inviting but testing enough for those who dared to drop their concentration, especially with the addition of strategically placed brightly coloured windmills at the judges area.
