On Saturday, 23rd of June, Awards Day was held in the Stockyard. Winners were picked for various categories, such as Best Attendance and Horse Ranger of the Year. There was much excitement and anticipation, as the riders don’t know beforehand who had won. Also, Golden and Silver Spurs were handed out to those who earned them. The Display Team and Band performed, and a great time was had by all.
Thursday May 10th, No 6 Squadron took two children to compete in the Fancy Dress competition at the Royal Windsor Horse Show. The theme was ‘Books’, and so the Squadron, after much deliberation, decided to dress up to ‘Peter Pan’. Captain Hook and Peter Pan made an appearance, along with their trusty mounts dressed up as galleons and the sky. Our contestants came in a very credible 5th place.
Everyone was in good voice at the Christmas Carol service, held at the Chapel Royal, Hampton Court Palace. As ever the event was very well attended, and guests included the Mayor of Richmond, Councillor Marc Cranfield. Before the service parents, friends and supporters joined us at the Mews for mince pies and wine. Truly Christmassy.
