HEAVY HORSES AT UMBERLEIGH - Sunday 6th September

 

On Sunday 6th September the Hunt Supporters are organising a trip to Umberleigh to visit Jonathan Warter and family at Higher Biddacott Farm for a talk and tour on Jonathan's life time of experience of starting and working with heavy horses. From the prairies of Canada, to film work and working with horses on home soil Jonathan has a breath and depth of knowledge as well as a passion for the heavy horse. A praper (as they say in Devon) Devonshire cream tea is also on the agenda at Higher Biddacot – which comes highly recommended and the Fox and Hounds Pub at Eggesford Station is ideally situated on the way home for an early supper.   

 

£10 each or £30 for a family of four.  All booking through Tracey (0787 941 6252) as numbers are limited.
