Royal Visit

On 9th May 2018 HRH The Princess Royal visited our group at Plumpton as part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations.  It was such an exciting afternoon.  She arrived by helicopter and was greeted outside the arena by lots of local dignatories.  The Princess then entered the arena and met all our riders and ponies. She got involved with our Countryside Challenge demonstration by handing out letters for our riders to post.  HRH also presented each of our riders and ponies with a 50th Anniversary commemorative rosette.  Brass headcollar name plates were presented to Rose & Toby and a 35 year long service award to Margaret Fogg.  Lesley Morrill, our Chairman, received a special trophy to acknowledge her tremendous achievement of running 52 marathons in 52 weeks, helping to raise funds for the Group.  Before the Princess left she cut our 50th Anniversary Celebration cake made by Jenny Brown.
