We were washed out in March and then locked down until July, but we still managed to have four fantastic months of schooling and clinics. Thank you to everyone who has supported us during this topsy turvy year – for bringing your horses, running clinics, embracing the changes and for all your feedback/posts/photos/videos that we have loved reading and watching.
With November upon us and another lockdown looming we will spend the next few days putting the course to bed for the winter.
Before we sign off for the year, I want to give a big shout out to the team behind the scenes who work so tirelessly to keep the course looking fabulous all year round: Drazic (@cookneycreations) who joined us this year and is a complete genius with a shovel and a strimmer, our wonderful neighbours Penny and Kevin – Penny is chief jump painter and artist and Kevin is a dab hand at putting fences back together again in a hurry – and Nicky and Phil (aka mum and dad) who do everything from admin to jump building, mowing the fields to towing lorries out of the mud. Maggie the Labrador would also like a mention for her role as chief of course security, but she couldn’t be in the photo because she was breaking up a party of non socially distanced bunnies over by the mounds.
We look forward to welcoming you back in March for (let’s hope) a longer, happier and less interrupted 2021 season.
***GROUND IS GOOD***
For anyone booked to come schooling this week, the ground on the course is holding up very well despite the rain. We have roped off the bottom end of the lorry park and there is hard standing under the grass at the top so easy to drive on and off. We look forward to seeing you! 🐎👌 …
***HALF TERM OPENING***
DRUM ROLLLLLLLLL for our final opening week of the year, which is very sadly fast creeping up on us. Over the half term week we will be open Tuesday 27th, Wednesday 28th, Friday 30th and Saturday 31st. After this we will be closed until the spring, so come and have final spin on grass while you still can! Online bookings www.lodgefarmcrosscountry.co.uk …
