The 7th December was a special day at the BDHRA as it was our annual Christmas Party and this year there was something for everyone.
Our honoured Guest was Mr Christopher Kilroy and in addition to talking to each rider as he handed them their Christmas rosette, he donated a hefty cheque to the BDHRA so we have a lot to thank him for.
The children played various games after the Nativity Tableau had finished and no one was left out. Guests played a variation of pass the parcel with the winner each time winning a sweetie and the school teachers took part in a very funny dressing up game, much to the amusement of their pupils. Willington County Primary school children came along too and sang a beautiful Christmas song to get everyone in the festive mood.
The riding centre was transformed with pretty lights and a chistmas tree took centre stage. A special visitor make an entrance . Yes, it was Santa Clause on a pony and each child received a Christmas present.
The Eppi Brown Memorial Shield for the Most Improved Rider was given to Somil Sharma a pupil from St John`s. Well done Somil
