Fantastic weather was the icing on the cake for this years Charity Fun Day. Following the success of Pink Day, Easterton held a ‘Red Day’ in support of The British Heart Foundation who fund pioneering, vital, life-saving research which has supported important achievements in the past 45 years of heart health research.

The 2010 Derby

The winner of class 1, Sarah Johnston, was presented with a perpetual Cup in memory of Alan W Monahan. Alan loved his time at Easterton with his family and their two horses.

Adrianne Murphy won class 2 and was presented with a Cup in memory of J. Douglas Glen who was a past chairman of the Scottish BSJA and sat on the Rules Committee. Douglas, also a British Eventing Official, had long connections with Easterton. Adrianne’s win was extra emotional as it was the final time competing on her talented pony, Elmo. After her studies this year, it is time for her to move on to competing horses.

A silver cup in memory of Margaret W. Brown was presented by entertaining commentator for the day, Brian Black, to class 3 winner, Dawn Shaw. 'Mrs Brown' as she liked to be addressed, loved horses, and golf, She was a familiar figure at events for over 30 years and adored leisurely rides round Easterton's canter track at the grand age of ninety-four. Coincidentally, Mrs Brown also played a role in starting the DRB Stud run by daughter, Rosemary, in partnership with David Ralston, which bred Dawn’s winning horse, Suzie (DRB’s Own Business).
