Top Tips

Daisy’s Update from the Hickstead Pemier League…

Daisy’s Update from the Hickstead Pemier League…

“We had a great few days at Hickstead Premier League, Merri (Aramis T) was a star in both PSG tests placing 9th and 11th in huge classes! The Inter I was another good test, apart from one moment! Merri was on excellent form which was impressive considering the 35+ degrees of heat on the first day and the thunder storm/rain showers on the second!!

A Successful June for Daisy!

A Successful June for Daisy!

June has been a competition filled month and the real highlights have to be both the Wellington and Hickstead Premier League Competitions.  Wellington at the start of June, was situated first on the busy competition calendar and the weather was almost sunny and the venue was efficient as always. However, the same can’t be said for the weather at Hickstead! We were towed into the gates in deep mud and a few days later towed back out in even thicker mud in more treacherous conditions.
