ON Saturday, August 31, Gransha Equestrian Centre, Bangor will hold the final of the Caroline Grimshaw Photography and All Things Beauty by Rachel Rogan Dressage and Combined Training league. Competitors have had the opportunity to qualify at the three shows in June and July to be in with a chance of winning some great prizes on offer at this final show. Don’t worry though, even if you haven’t attended any of the previous shows, you can still compete at the final. Classes range from Intro through to PSG and 50cm up to 1.10m.
Organisers are delighted that both sponsors will be in attendance for the show on August 31. Caroline will be snapping away, capturing beautiful images of horse and rider, while Rachel will have her sweet smelling samples from the Body Shop available for all to try.
In addition, there will be delicious cakes and tray bakes on offer from Ruth’s Vintage Bakery in Donaghadee. Ruth forms part of the Hilltop Hackers, who are completing a hackathon challenge in aid of Brooke Animal Hospital. All proceeds from their cake sale will go towards their £500 target.
Entries close on Sunday, August 25. Contact Kirsty on 07753 204660 for more information.
