Many Thanks to the landowner. At the landowners request, there is to be no riding on this land except for organised events, doing so risks losing this land again! If you see or hear of anyone that is, please let them know.
Another great trial, I hope you all enjoyed it! It turned out a little bit harder than expected due to the overnight rain and early morning snow showers, luckily it didn’t settle and the sun did just come out just as the trial finished.
