SHOWING UPDATE

After much deliberation we’ve decided not to run any showing until March 2019. With concerns over weather and a lot of people not showing their horses over the winter, we feel it would be best to wait until next season.

With that in mind we are planning a special SPRING SHOWING GALA on Sunday 31 March at Willow Farm. Pls put the date in your diary!!

LOCKSKINNER’S ODE UPDATE

We have now reached full capacity for the event on 8 September! Thank you so much to everyone who has entered. It’s looking to be a very good day.
I will be going through entries tomorrow, however some people have not yet sent the entry fee so please can you do this ASAP to secure your place. At that stage a few more places may become available so please email me tomorrow afternoon if you would like to go on the waiting list.

Many thanks
Colette

STOP PRESS – cancelled/postponed event

Hi everyone. I’ve just had a discussion with my team and we’ve decided (very reluctantly) that as the ground is so hard at Denne Hill (its grazed by sheep so there’s very little grass cover) that it would be unwise / unsafe to go ahead on Saturday 28 July. It’s a real pity as we’ve received a fair few entries. However we are going to reschedule to another date (possibly another venue if Denne Hill isn’t available) and I will let u know ASAP. Sorry for the inconvenience

**The gymkhanas, dressage etc is ALL cancelled / postponed. There will be no show on Saturday 28 July**

Pls note that all other dates are currently unaffected and most of our other venues are kept purely for shows and mown so have a decent grass cover or a surfaced arena we can use.

Wednesday 8 August is going ahead as planned and includes gymkhanas!

Pls spread the word about the cancellation/postponement. We hate to disappoint people but feel it’s the right decision to make.

Everyone who pre-entered will be contacted on Monday 23 July and offered either:

>transfer of entry to the new date

>full refund

>credit note for use at any show for a 12 month period

Many thanks

Sunny weather for May shows….

So that’s the last of the rain and we now have sunshine for the next 10 days. Yippee. Good weather for Barville Farm and Kent Festival @ Farming World

The ground at Barville is always very good. It will be perfect for jumping on Saturday!!

Hope to see you all there

Sunday 29 April @ Willow Farm

The show field looks amazing for the event this weekend – 29 April @ Willow Farm (Jumping & Showing)

As the ground is so good and the forecast now is for the rain to arrive much later in the day/evening on Sunday we are going ahead outside as planned. Hopefully pics of show ground will be loaded onto Facebook later today.
Schedule is on Show Dates page

STOP PRESS

Our new on line entry system is now up and running (huge thanks to Graham Gott) so please do take a look. Entries are now open for Farming World and the Denne Hill ODE in June!!
We are delighted to say that the new system enables us to scrap the 50p fee that was previously added on to pre entries so now it’s even cheaper for you to enter on line. Classes are just £8 each or 3 for £22 (for most classes at most shows).

**SHOW CANCELLED**

Due to safety we have taken the decision to cancel our Showing Show on Sunday 4 March. The weather over the next few days is due to get even worse and we need to give sufficient notice to the venue and to staff, so we’ve made the decision today to cancel.
We hope the 11 March will go ahead as planned – pls keep an eye on my website and Facebook.
Keep warm and safe everyone!

JENKEY FARM UPDATE

(please note that this message applies ONLY to the shows at Jenkey Farm and not any other venue that we use)

As some of you have noticed we have regrettably taken the decision to cancel our December and January events at Jenkey Farm. With the old outdoor arena demolished and the new one not finished yet (and no date for completion) we felt it would be unacceptable to run the events with no surfaced warm up. We apologise for any inconvenience and are truly sorry for the cancellations especially as the last couple of shows have been so well supported and so much fun.

As of 1 February the venue will be under new management with no external show bookings, so for the foreseeable future we will not have any dates at this venue.

We would like to take the opportunity to say a huge thanks to fiona and Roxy Brient for letting use the venue / helping us establish and manage the events. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time at Jenkey.

Big thanks also to everyone who has so kindly supported the shows.

WE CONTINUE TO RUN AT WILLOW FARM AND ALL OUR OTHER VENUES
