Charity’s ‘biggest loser’ to be announced at Summer Extravaganza

World Horse Welfare is going to announce their “biggest loser” amongst their Shetland ponies at this year’s Summer Extravaganza in Norfolk.

Over the past six weeks volunteers have been taking the Shetland ponies at Hall Farm Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Snetterton for walks to keep them trim over the summer months.  At the extravaganza’s educational corner, they will be weighed to see which pony has lost the most weight since the walks started.  The charity’s vet and farrier will also be on hand in the educational corner to answer any questions from members of the public.

New midweek date for Nutwell Court Horse Trials

British Olympic team rider Mary King heads the entries at Nutwell Court Horse Trials which has a mid week date for the first ever time, in the hope it will attract more entries.

Scheduled to take place on Tuesday, July 3 and Wednesday 4, the move was initiated by organiser John Colson who said that in previous years a clash with other equine activities meant the event was failing to attract the number of entries required to make it feasible.
