Point to Point

Saturday 3rd June 2017  - Garthorpe, LE14 2RS

As promised, the Point to Point at Garthorpe was all go!

5 very competitive Pony Races went with a whizz.  Congratulations, not only to the winners Lily Diggle, Ellie Miller, Chloe East, Thomas Bradburne and Violet Barton but to all the competitors who made for a noisy, happy and enthusiastic start to our day.  We hope to see you for many years to come as combatants in Point-to-Points in the coming years.

The sun shone on us yet again so we could all enjoy our picnics, the sport and the company of a large crowd in the glorious surroundings provided by the Garthorpe venue.  Again, the Hound Parade made for a wonderful sight advancing up the home straight and many enjoyed mixing and mingling with them in the parade ring afterwards.  We even had time to squeeze in The Derby!

The day was run with military precision thanks to the ranks of volunteers who gave up their day.  And we would like to thank our sponsors without whom the day could not happen with all the escalating costs we incur in putting on such a high risk sport.  With their support we are proud to say that it is our meeting that is setting the pace with medical provision.  

We are set for the same day next year, Saturday 2nd June 2018 and we look forward to seeing you!
