It is huge blow to hear the news that we are losing another show centre in the south of England. Towerlands Park has been one of the best show centres available to competitors in the south, holding both junior and senior premier shows, 2nd round qualifiers and Inter nations competitions. It’s loss means for us much greater travelling distances, more expense travelling and a total lack of any premier show centre now in Kent or Essex. The final show will be held at the end of October leaving a huge dent in local competitions.
On a brighter note we travelled to Patchetts on the 4th and although the M25 proved to be it’s usual nightmare, I had a good day with placings on all the horses, this is a venue that we will be travelling to more often.
Good news was received by post this week that I have been put forward for the final selection of the World Class Development Programme. I will be attending trials and an interview in November.
