We close our season out with a super fun Ribbon Day also held at Bullocks Farm on Saturday 22nd April.

We start at 9am with the following schedule for the day:

  • 9am – First class ‘Best Turned Out’
  • Flat Classes – eg Best Walking or Trotting Horse/Pony, Best Rider, Best Paced and Mannered etc

Its really important if you are coming to this day to register with us and to hire a horse or pony. Come earlier if possible to help get the horses and ponies ready for the day (from about 8am).
