A BIG BURNHAM BEECHES THANK YOU!

A big thank you to everyone who turned out to help at the Burnham Beeches Unaffiliated Horse Trials.  Over 200 riders competed on the day.  We had excellent weather and a full day of exciting competition.

We are very grateful to all our volunteer helpers who gave so generously of their time to help us.
